THE LOVELESS CHURCH

We can sometime look at things

The Message to the Church in Ephesus

“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Ephesus. This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand, the one who walks among the seven gold lampstands:

2 “I know all the things you do. I have seen your hard work and your patient endurance. I know you don’t tolerate evil people. You have examined the claims of those who say they are apostles but are not. You have discovered they are liars. 3 You have patiently suffered for me without quitting.

4 “But I have this complaint against you. You don’t love me or each other as you did at first! 5 Look how far you have fallen! Turn back to me and do the works you did at first. If you don’t repent, I will come and remove your lampstand from its place among the churches. 6 But this is in your favor: You hate the evil deeds of the Nicolaitans, just as I do.

7 “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches. To everyone who is victorious I will give fruit from the tree of life in the paradise of God.

Notice how aware Jesus was-and is-of what is happening in His church

“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Ephesus. This is the message from the one who holds the seven stars in his right hand, the one who walks among the seven gold lampstands:
We see He knows because His word tells us Jesus walks in their midst, He walks in our midst, He walks in the midst of all the churches in our city, It isn’t just “church” it is His church. He is a part of it, He gave His life for His church. He is very passionate about what happens in the His church, to His church and things through His church and about all the people in His church. The church today has a great number of critics, but there is no equal to His church.
Jesus knows what is happening. He knows what is taking place on the surface and what is happening under the surface, in the hearts and minds of His people. Jesus is always aware of what happens in all of our lives.
The church of Ephesus was a hardworking church
