Throughout this sermon series we are looking parts of God’s Word that involve the church, and what it looks like for us to be the church that God created us to be. Today, we’re looking at a message in Revelation that Jesus has for the church in Pergamum. His message to this church helps us to realize:

The enemy is sneaky! He will often use internal threats that pose serious risks to the church, such as
Rev. 2:13-15, 1 Pet. 5:8, Eph. 4:27, 6:11, James 4:7

1. Disunity
1 Cor. 1:10, Phil. 2:2, Ps. 133:1, 2 Cor. 13:11

2. Worldly theology
Matt. 6:24, 10:32-33, 12:20, Rom. 12:2, 1 Cor. 9:19-23

3. The church not loving people well
1 Pet. 3:8, Col. 3:14, Rom. 12:4-5, Gal. 6:1, Matt. 18:15, James 5:19-20, 2 Thess. 3:15

So, ask yourself…

1. What internal threats do I face?
John 10:29, Eph. 4:27

2. Am I loving God and others well?
1 John 4:19-21, Matt. 22:37-40

3. How can I better apply God’s Word to my life?
Heb. 4:12, James 1:23-24
Reflection Questions

1. Have you ever studied or hear this passage preached on before? What stood out to you?

2. Where in your life does the enemy have an opportunity to attack you through an internal threat?

3. How can you love God and others better?

4. How can you apply God’s Word to your life better?

5. How can you help other people to understand Christ’s message to the church and Pergamum, and then apply His message to their lives?

6. What is your biggest take away from this message? What did God teach you? Do you feel led to put anything into action? If so, what, and what practical step(s) do you need to take to be obedient to what God has led you to do? Who can keep you accountable to accomplishing this?
