The letter to the church in Ephesus is Jesus message in Revelation 2:1-7
Jesus commends the church in Ephesus for their perseverance. The church had no tolerance for wicked people. They were also lauded for testing false teachers and teachings. The church endured a lot of hardships for the sake of Jesus and did not grow weary in it.
Jesus however condemned them for falling wayward and urged them to repent. The church no longer had the same passion they had the first time they became Christians. It was time the church got back to the way they were before. It was time the church went into revival.
He warned them that if they did not repent, he would remove the lampstand from its place. The comparison of the church in Ephesus with my current church is their persistence in preaching the right doctrine. Both my mother church and current church preach sound doctrine and they have played an integral part in my Christian faith and spiritual growth.
What positive comparisons does your church have with the one in Ephesus?
