Sermon Text: Revelation 2:1-7


  1. Power & Presence (v.1)
  2. Principled (vv.2-3)
  3. Passion (vv.4-7)

Reflection Questions:

  1. Which one do you think about more: the power of God OR the personal presence of God?  What’s your plan – in the remainder of the month of January – for savoring God in a more whole and balanced way?
  2. What are 5 things that you need to become more intolerant of (see Rev. 2:2,6; see also 1 Tim. 1:8-11; 6:3ff; 1 John 4:1)?
  3. Is your relationship with God all duty and no delight?  Yes or no?  Why?
  4. What are you jealous for and extremely partial about? …You discriminate in order to get it?  You PAY whatever price to have it?  You sing its praises? You proselytize to people about it?  You’ll even appear ridiculous for it?
