Ephesus: The Loveless Church (I). Nothing Can Be Compared To God’s Love. The Lord Shall Baptise You With The Heart That Loves Without Holding Back, In The Name Of Jesus. Amen.

Ezra 1-3

Revelation 2:1-7

Romans 13:10– “Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.”

The first letter from Jesus was sent to the Church at Ephesus. For us to understand the letter, let us look at the city of Ephesus and the church that was there. The city of Ephesus was then a buoyant commercial centre of Asia and has an excellent harbor. It was like the banking centre of the whole world because it was very economically valuable. It was equally a city where a big temple for Diana, a goddess, was built. There was a great vault in the temple of Diana where nobody could think or dare to steal. It was therefore very safe to keep money and all sorts of valuables there (Acts 19). Acts 18:18-21 tells us that Paul came to Ephesus with the Christian couple who were great teachers of God’s word, Aquila and Pricilla. This tells us how much of God’s word was taught to the Ephesians Christians.

It is equally important to note that opposition was raised against the church, believing that the new faith is contrary to their idolatrous worship of Diana, the goddess of prosperity (Acts 19:23-44). Yet this church stood in their faith and love for Christ (Ephesians 1:11-19) against the predominant anti-Christ environment and tradition (Ephesians 2:12-13).

Beloved, even the church of today, like the Church in Ephesus, is confronted with many opposition in the world around us, traditions of men, strange beliefs and philosophy, riches, technology and more.

In Revelation 2:4, the Lord revealed that He had a thing against the church, although she was praised earlier for her good works in verse 2 and 3. He said, “Nevertheless…”. That means a word of caution here. Alas  this church has left her first love! Verse 5 calls for instant repentance.

Today, the love of many Christians is waxing cold towards the Lord! Many do things just as a matter of routine and no more for the love of Christ. Beloved of the Lord, has your love for God also waxed cold? Are you still as fervent as when you started this race? Repent now and be restored. When you are restored, there is a reward. You will eat from the tree of life in the midst of the paradise of God. May we be partakers of this glorious opportunity, in Jesus’ name. Amen.

PRAYER POINTS:

1. My Father, do not allow Your love to wax cold in my heart, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

2. Darkness assigned against my spiritual life, scatter, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

3. Love of Christ, overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

4. Any power that wants me to offend God, die, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

6. Spirit of darkness, jump out of my life, in the name of Jesus. Amen.

Thank You Jesus.
