7.30.17 Smeared Smyrna


Passage: Revelation 2:8-11
Sermon Title: “Smeared Smyrna”

Main Idea: To the church in Smyrna, Jesus has only encouraging words.That’s because this was a beaten-down, persecuted church. How can Smyrna remain faithful in the face of prison or even death? Because they have a Risen Jesus! We might not face the same kind of persecution, but we can find strength to obey Christ and face the hardest things of life, because we serve the same Risen Jesus.
