The lovely church of Ephesus!
I have always had a keen interest in church growth and importance. Both today and when we look back at the church work for almost 2000 years.
In every age God has had his tools and his servants through 2000 years.
Perhaps one of the loveliest and one of the parishes with the greatest importance, is the church in Ephesus in ancient Asia Minor, the present Turkey.
It was not just one or several persons who were lit on fire for God, but an entire community!
Just get a strong enthusiasm in me, a whole church on fire for God!
What was it that made the church at Ephesus was such a wonderful tool for God?
There are of course many aspects of this, not just one reason.
But we have something to learn here. Will take 5 points why the church in Ephesus and was a wonderful church.
1.Menigheten stood out in the world and the religious.
2.Menigheten had strong service gifts for a long time.
3.Menigheten loved God's word and fused with the Word.
4.Menigheten endured and enjoyed all of God's word.
5.Menigheten experienced a supernatural dimension.
There are the 5 most important points in Ephesus church history, why it was there it was. A congregation lit on fire for God.
Looking at the Christian church life in Norway, the NOK that many born-again Christians in Norway from South to North and from West to East. But that's as far as I know of no real burning churches that are near the church in Ephesus.
Try to go through the 5 points I have listed, so one should understand why. Should the church in Norway come on, then we can begin to learn from history. It will create a much deeper understanding of why things are as they are.
We need not go here and there to find the answers. All the goods are found in God's word and in history.
History tells us that the whole church in Ephesus was at work and they were burning, and served the Lord with joy!
This is the way to go. History provides the answers. God's word gives a correct and biblical answers!
