Description: The Ephesians were intolerant and haters… and for that, Jesus praised them.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, Pastor Monty Simao continues with our study in the book of Revelation and shares with us that in Christ’s letter to the church of Ephesus, He, indeed, did praise them for their intolerance to evil and hating the things He hates.
But most of us don’t consider intolerance a virtue, nor think that there would be something that Jesus actually hates… let alone, wants us to hate too. But that’s exactly what we read.
And in the midst of this, we are told to love.
Sound contradictory? Not at all.
Let’s love the things that God loves and hate the things that God hates… and in so doing, know what it is like to walk in Truth.

Description: Paul declares the importance of church growth. Not a growth of numbers but a growth towards spiritual maturity. Paul defines what a mature believer looks like and how true church growth builds the church up.
Description: Paul explains his circumstances to the Ephesian believers. He knew that some were discouraged by his imprisonment and persecution. Many of them probably wondered why God allowed those things to happen. But Paul never wondered, Paul knew. He knew that if he was in prison it was only because God wanted him in prison and he knew that God would use whatever circumstances to fulfil His kingdom purpose.
