Title: "The Threat of Tepid Christianity"
Text: Revelation 3:14-22
Pastor Perry Kallis
Many of us are familiar with the painting by Warner Sallman entitled: “Christ at Heart’s Door”. It was painted in the 1940’s to reflect the verse in Revelation 3:20 where Jesus declares that He “...stands at the door and knocks.” It’s easy to forget that Jesus’ words of invitation were not primarily written to unbelievers, but rather to a self-sufficient church in Laodicea that had lost its passion and purpose for the Lordship of Christ. This last of the seven churches to receive a letter in Revelation will receive both the greatest threat as well as the greatest promise from our Risen Lord. The message for the church in Laodicea is likely the truth that most closely matches the need for application among churches in our current age of modern ministry.
All churches and, especially, our church families are invited to a time of prayer on Thursday, September 10 at 6:30 pm at the GracePoint Church outdoor amphitheater. Bring your own chair. We will be following COVID Social distancing guidelines.
