PROLOGUE - All Head, No Heart
Jesus commends the Ephesians for how they serve faithfully, endure hardship, have sound doctrine, and hate heretics, but Jesus’ big criticism for the Church at Ephesus was that they are not very loving.
Instead of simply criticizing the Ephesians for not loving well, we must read Jesus’ words humbly and realize how we can become like them if we’re not careful.
questions for reflection
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.”
Hebrews 12:1 NLT
