We began a series from Revelation to hear from the eternal God His message to His churches through the messages given to seven churches in the Roman province of Asia. Churches are not buildings but people – people who have His Holy Spirit within them, bonded together by His Spirit. Thus we each profit from responding rightly to His Word in order for His church to profit from responding rightly to His Word.
From His message to the church of Smyrna, we hear the eternal Christ speak affirmation to His beleaguered little church that their may be trouble ahead, but it has purpose and their faithfulness will be rewarded. His Spirit will aid them through their fiery trial.
This is the second in a multi-part sermon series on church revitalization
