In this message series we have seen that Jesus had a message for the seven churches of Asia Minor. Jesus has a message for the church still today. Since we are followers of Christ and make up the church today, Jesus has a message for each of us individually. Let's have listening ears and hearts to what Jesus has to say to us in the seventh church he speaks to: the church in Laodicea, the lukewarm church.
1. The DESIRE TO BE COMFORTABLE in a church can LEAD TO COMPROMISE.
Church is not about preaching what people WANT TO HEAR but rather preaching about what people NEED TO HEAR, IN THE BIBLE.
2. Compromise in a church will lead to SPIRITUAL BLINDNESS and POVERTY.
3. Spiritual poverty in a church WILL LEAD TO DEATH.
Reprove - GOD POINTS OUT OUR SIN TO US
Discipline - GOD TRAINS US TO OBEY HIS RULES
As we conclude this series, Revelation Part One: The Church, we have learned that Jesus' messages to His churches in Revelation still ring true today. The best way we can be prepared for what faces us in our tomorrows is by living ready for Jesus' return today. Let's learn to be ever-ready as we "hear what the Spirit says to the churches." Let us personalize what Jesus has written to His churches. Why? Because as the people and leaders of a church go, so goes the church. Do you want a better church? Then be a more faith-filled and loving Christ-follower!
