PostSubject: To try to understand the letter to the church in Ephesus by Paul's letter to the same   Sat Dec 02, 2017 7:52 pm

Good deeds and hard work: Paul taught - we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do cf Ephesians 2:10

Perseverance: Paul taught - praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints cf Ephesians 6:18 KJV

Cannot tolerate wicked men: something to do with Paul's teaching in Ephesians 6:10-17 in action?

What about forsaken first love? Love for God or love for fellow saints? I'd say the latter and something to do with what they were commended i.e. cannot tolerate wicked men. Likely to the point of cannot tolerate fellow saints weaknesses and shortcomings.
What we know is at the beginning they loved each other cf Ephesians 1:15
And Paul taught and more: Be completely humble and gentle: be patient, bearing with one another in love cf Ephesians 4:2....
