A Truth-less Church                Revelation 2:18-29

 

Sermon Summary: Jesus' encouragement to his people is to persevere to the end (the whole point of Revelation), but there are obstacles that will make that impossible. In Thyratira, Jesus warns us that a lack of truth will keep us from making it. If we're going to persevere to the end, then we will follow the lead of our Savior and love in truth. That means knowing the Truth, speaking the truth, and living the truth.
