Title: A Church for the End of the World...Suffers
Scripture: Revelation 2:8-11
Speaker: Taylor Fair, TaylorF@ChristCommunityKC.org

>> If following Jesus is easy, we aren’t doing it right
>> True loyalty to Jesus ensures suffering
>> “What has following Jesus cost us?”
>> How are we preparing to die?
"When this was proclaimed by the herald, the entire crowd, Gentiles as well as Jews living in Smyrna, cried out with an uncontrollable anger and with a loud shout: “This is the teacher of Asia, the father of the Christians, the destroyer of our gods, who teaches many not to sacrifice or worship”...then it occurred to them to shout in unison that Polycarp should be burned alive." - Martyrdom of Polycarp
>> True loyalty to Jesus rewards our suffering with victory
"We felt the Lord brought him to us at such a time as this for healing. We agreed to pray for him the whole night. God, very rich in His mercy, set him free from the demonic spirit. For the past two days, this young man has helped set up Jesus film equipment and joined in morning prayer, fasting and sharing his testimony during fellowship. Yesterday, his parents came to see him in the church. To their amazement, he told them he did not want to go back home. He wanted to stay in the church with Christian families. Remember, he is a Muslim. Shortly after that, I lead this young man to accept Christ, and the Lord restored his health and state of mind. This afternoon, he went out with the outreach team as a translator."
