An exposition of Revelation 2:12-17. This message by Pastor Rod Harris was delivered at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday morning, June 29, 2008.
Public boldness without moral integrity to back it up is of no benefit or value to the kingdom of God.
- The Sovereign Lord of the church applauds genuine public boldness.
- The Sovereign Lord of the church demands that doctrinal integrity accompany that bold public stance. The church in Pergamum tolerated corruption within their midst. What persecution could not do from without, apathy and toleration accomplished from within.
- When the church does respond to the loving rebuke of its Master, great blessings follow. This is also true of anyone who will come to Jesus in faith.
May God grant us the grace to not only believe but to faithfully, consistently live the truth of his word so that when we speak we have credibility.
