Week 2 in our Love Letters To The Church series. This week we look at Jesus had to say to the church at Ephesus.
Background & Setting:
- Their/Our Works
- Their/Our Endurance
- Their/Our Righteousness
As critical as those seem to the Christian Walk, and as foundational as they would appear there is a MAJOR issue – an Abandonment of Love.
I Corinthians 13:1-6 – The Way of Love
Galatians 5:22-24 – The Fruit of the Spirit
Matthew 11:28-30 – Without Love we are running on our efforts to ENDURE, RIGHTEOUS, WORKS!
An Image of the shift of focus, or as Jesus calls it – the abandonment can be found in Luke 10:38-41.
Martha is a picture of enduring, righteous, works, Mary is a picture of the Love Jesus is referring too, to sit at His feet and to grow in that relationship. It is a daily part of our walk.
