The Church at Its Best

January 7, 2018
If we look back at the early church, we see the church at its best. The church is made up of believers, not a building.  It was the early church…
Bible Text: Revelation 3:14-22 | Preacher: Dr. George A. Mulford | Series: Revelation: Behold He Comes! Laodicea was a wealthy, self-sufficient city, but today, there is practically nothing left of it. It was known as a wealth and commerce center, a fashion center, and a pharmaceutical center where it produced an eye salve. Tonight, we look at our Lord's letter to Laodicea which had only words of condemnation and warning. This church received not a single word of commendation as contrasted with the church in Philadelphia which was just the opposite. This letter is particularly relevant today because churches like Laodicea and people who call themselves Christians but have a Laodicean mentality can be found everywhere. This was a church that made God sick. It was only lukewarm with its compromise and self-sufficiency, leaving God out. Has there ever been a time when you loved the Lord more than you do now? When you served Him more fervently? When you cared more for Jesus than you do today? The Lord's warning in this letter is a warning to us today: Be zealous and repent.
