In the history of the world, there has never been a more important, influential, and polarizing person than Jesus Christ. In the Seven, we’ll explore the seven reactions of seven ancient churches that sit in ruins today—and discover what we as the church today can learn from Jesus’ words to those churches in the book of Revelation.
Pastor Mark preaches on Jesus’ words to the church in Laodicea from the ancient city itself. Jesus has no encouragement for them. They are lukewarm and worship comfort, not Christ. Though materially wealthy, they are spiritually poor, blind, and naked. Jesus tells them—and us—to accept discipline, be zealous, and repent. If you stop repenting, you’ll start growing lukewarm. They had basically locked Jesus out of the church. Is he really welcome in your life and church?
