Developing the Disciples' Faith, Part 2
Today on Bridging the Gap, we begin an in depth look at the seven letters the Lord Jesus sent to the seven churches, as transcribed by John in the second and third chapters of Revelation. These letters are encouraging, chastening, and challenging - for those churches and for us! There are so many great lessons for us in these verses. Pastor Lloyd begins with an introduction to the seven letters.
Seven Mirrors into the Soul: A Look at The Seven Letters to the Seven Churches in Revelation - In Revelation, John the beloved apostle, is given a message to write seven letters to the seven churches in Asia. These letters, written to correct and guide have both personal and prophetic application. Within these letters you see two thousand years of church history unfold. From the Early Church to the Reformation Church and even the church today, these letters are like mirrors to the soul where we see not only church history but our inner selves. Whether our faith is lukewarm, we have little strength, or we need to return to our first love, Jesus Christ, these letters show us not only the state of the church but what’s deep within our own hearts. In his message “The Seven Letters to the Seven Churches” from the book of Revelation, Pastor Lloyd teaches the true significance of the letters to the churches: as seven mirrors piercing into the soul with great counsel from the Lord for our hearts. Pastor Lloyd’s series explains the message to each first century church and its significance to your life today.
