Referring to the church at Ephesus, Thomas E. Peck writes:

The habit of love (which is "the fulfilling of the law") had not grown in strength as the fervor declined. This is a dangerous symptom, both in the individual believer and in a church, and the church of Ephesus is more severely threatened (threatened even with extinction) than that of Thyatira, in which the opposite state of things existed; in which the Saviour commends the active ministry of love, and rebukes the want of zeal against error.
