When Jesus Observes Our Suffering Part 1
July 24, 2019
Part 1 of 3
We don’t know a lot about the New Testament church at Smyrna, in what is now modern Turkey. But what we do know speaks volumes about what Jesus thought of this church. Few of us face the persecution inflicted on the believers at Smyrna. What would happen if we did?
The seven churches of Revelation to whom Jesus dictated His letters are prototypes of the churches that exist today. These messages are designed to help us evaluate what our letter would say if Jesus were to write his opinion of us! Here is rebuke, instruction, and encouragement. And, best of all, we are hearing these truths from the One whose opinion really matters! Great benefit was derived from John Stott’s book What Christ Thinks of the Church when these messages were prepared.
