  • The purpose of the letter was to encourage them.
The Word of the Lord: Rev. 1:3,
Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it, because the time is near.
The most familiar passage is:
Rev. 3:20
Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.
Here are some examples of what Jesus thinks of the church:
Pergamos -
Kept the Faith
Tolerates immorality and heresies
Sardis –
Kept the Faith
A dead church

Rev. 2:1
To the angel of the church in Ephesus write: These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands.
Rev. 2:2-3
I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false.  You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.
  • We can be busy doing church work and yet never do the work of the church.
Rev. 2:4
Nevertheless, I hold this against you: You have left your first love.
