Text: Rev 2:1-7 | Series: Revelation 1-3

In the vision God gave John about Christ’s return to earth and the ensuing victory, Christ Jesus wanted John to address seven churches prior to His arrival.

The letters to the seven churches are representative of what God wants from us.

The first letter addressed to the church in Ephesus highlighted four principles:

  • God is pleased by our faithful works
  • Without our love for Christ our obedience is not pleasing to God
  • We need to regularly examine conditions of our hearts
  • Our victory has already been secured by Christ

Recall our baptism and conversion. Do we love Christ as much as when we were first saved? Or have we, like the Ephesian Church, been forgetful of the grace of God?
