To the Church in Laodicea

Revelation 3:14-22

Christ’s seventh and final letter to the churches forcefully and poignantly summarizes the exhortations of the previous letters. At the heart of Christ’s message to Laodicea is a diagnosis of persisting in sin on account of willful self-delusion (verse 17). The resolution to the spiritual problem is to stop hiding sin in the heart and to learn the discipline of being a repenting Christian. This message explores the message of Christ’s tough love for His church.
