Smyrna: The Persecuted But Rich Church
In the book of Revelation, Jesus wrote seven letters to the seven churches in Asia Minor calling them to repent. His message to them was to repent of their worldliness and sinfulness, to renew their love for Him, and to protect the purity of the gospel. As we read these letters, we begin to see that every rebuke and warning is applicable to our own lives. We begin to see the need for the church to wake up and heed Jesus’ timeless call to His people! It is time for us to pay attention to how Jesus saw these churches and turn back to Christ as our first love! It is time for us to embrace our calling by standing firm on truth.
