Dear Church // 7 Letters to 7 Churches in Revelation
October 15 – November 26, 2023
It can be easy to look at the state of the church in our slice of the world and become disheartened. There are theological compromises, moral failings, and attrition in most denominations and congregations. And yet, in the midst of that, Jesus promises that He will build his church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it. This is not the first time His church has struggled. The ancient church was rife with controversy as well. In Revelation, Jesus speaks to seven of the early churches and gives them encouragement, instruction, and hope for how they might live faithfully in the midst of their challenges. In this series we’ll see how Jesus’ words to these churches are imperative for us to listen to as his Church today.
