THE CHURCH AT EPHESUS had fallen in LOVE with Jesus and they began to do a lot of good things, but eventually Jesus had to call them to repent. He said He had one thing against them. They had left their first love. God wants everything we do to be motivated by our love for Him. The problem in Ephesus was that, although they still had the work, labor, and patience of the past, their motives had changed. They were no longer motivated by love. Other motives had crept in to their hearts. Jesus called them to remember and repent. He called them to leave the legal relationship and return to their first love relationship.
