The Persecuted Church Part 4

  1. 1. The Persecuted Church The Church At Smyrna Revelation 2:8-11
  2. 2. The Church Of Smyrna We have completed the second of the seven churches of Revelation. What can we learn from this church that will enable our churches and our Christian lives to be more pleasing to our Lord and Savior?
  3. 3. Faith The church in Smyrna held to their faith even under severe persecution. This is an example of Spirit filled faith. We are called to walk (live) by faith.
  4. 4. Humility They thought they were poor. Jesus said, “you are rich.” We should not think too highly of ourselves. Let God decide.
  5. 5. Faithfulness The Christians in Smyrna were faithful. God is faithful. He desires us, as His people to be faithful. God blesses and rewards faithfulness.
  6. 6. Overcomers These Christians endured and persevered. They put their faith into action even in the midst of severe persecution. The Christians in Smyrna are an example of true faith in action. This is an example for us to follow.
