Calvary BFC
RESPECTABLE IDOLS - Revelation 2:8-11
Would you die for what you believe? If so, why do we find it harder to live consistently according to what we believe? As we look at Revelation 2:8-11 we see that losing things and even losing life is not true loss because of the gain that we receive. But losing our faith- that would be the most tragic loss we could experience.
