Have you ever wondered what Jesus thinks of the church? The Bible ends with a mysterious letter called Revelation. It begins with a detailed description of Jesus in His heavenly glory followed by 7 short letters to 7 churches. In these letters, Jesus shares what He finds pleasing and displeasing in the church, His priorities for the church, and the rewards for faithful obedience. These letters were written to the early church, but are still relevant for the church of today. As we begin our study of the 7 letters of Revelation, we will explore the background of Revelation and observe how Jesus introduces himself to the 7 churches.
If Jesus wrote you a letter, what would He say to you? To our church? What would He share with us about His priorities for us? What does He find pleasing and displeasing? What would He say about our level of obedience? We'll take a look at how Jesus addressed each of these issues as we take a close look at the letters written to the seven churches of Asia Minor in the 1st Century. Though these letters weren’t addressed to us, they were written for us and provide us with a richer understanding of Jesus, His heart for the global church, and His eternal perspective for each of our lives.
