This letter to the church in Philadelphia teaches us an important lesson about what God values in the lives of his people ..read more

The church in Thyatira was a vibrant and fruitful church, but they had a serious problem of tolerating false teaching that led people into immorality and idolatry. We can part of a church that is doing so well in so many ways, and yet, perhaps there are things that we have learned to live with that Jesus wants to shine a light on ..read more
