Love Letters To The Church – Week 1 – Ephesus

Sermon Notes

Week 2 in our Love Letters To The Church series. This week we look at Jesus had to say to the church at Ephesus. 
Scripture:
Revelation 2:1-7


Key Points/Overview:

Background & Setting:

Jesus KNOWS

  • 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 Рthe 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.
