Why do I say that the good will become better ?
The church in Ephesus did many, many things which were good. But Jesus told them that they had LEFT ... their first love.
. The had some good THINGS. But Christ's eyes are infinitely discerning. Nothing escapes His laser gaze into our hearts. They had left their first love.
" I know your works and your labor and your endurance and that you cannot bear evil men, and you have tried those who call themselves apostles and are not.
And you have endurance and have borne all things because of My name and have not grown weary." (Rev. 2:2,3)
This is quite a church. No? Jesus doesn't flatter. He tells the truth frankly. He is not building them up just to criticize them. He is truthful. But He holds against them that they have left their first love.
"But I have one thing against you, that you have left your first love. Remember therefore where you have fallen from and repent and do the first works; ... " (v.5a)
Jesus Christ wanted them to return to their first love. The love directly for Him, for Him as a living and available Person who has the first place in EVERYTHING
This is where i want to be.
