'Love' is one of the most abused words within Christian circle.
1) Jesus commended the church of Ephesus for...
Resisting false teachers and false apostles;
Persevering hardship for Christ's name;
Hating the evil practices of the Nicolaitans.
2) Jesus condemned the church of Ephesus for...
They had forsaken their first love.
Three-fold reference of their First Love:
a) their love for all the saints;
b) their love for Christ;
c) Christ's love for them.
3) First Love is the main thing and the whole thing
Forsaking it means losing its earthly existence as Christ's representative (the church);
Repentance and rekindling it means to inherit the promised eternal life.
