Today, many voices, theories, and even theologies can quickly rob the church of its mission and first love—Jesus Christ. As occurred in the first century amid incredibly trying times, a “revelation” shook the church to sharpen its call and to persevere in mission. Consider how the seven churches of Revelation reveal what Christ seeks of His Bride–the Church today.

Be Unbroken by the Devil Revelation 2:8-11
Be Authentic Revelation 2:12-17
Be Pure Revelation 2:18-29
Be Full of Life Revelation 3:1-6
