07) Laodicea

  1. 1. Compiled and Presented by: Letters to the Churches Dave Stewart 24 August, 2008 Las Cruces, NM #07 www.churchofchristmiranda.com I Stand at the Door and Knock Revelation 3.14-22 Synopsis: The church in Laodicea was in trouble and didn’t even realize it. They were so self-deluded and complacent that they thought they needed nothing. Jesus’ love calls on them to be zealous and repent, buying from Him true treasure, true righteousness and true knowledge. “Unless otherwise indicated, all Scripture quotations are from The Holy Bible, English Standard Version, copyright © 2001 by Crossway Bibles, a division of Good News Publishers.
