Sermon Notes

 What has following Jesus ever cost you or your family? Has it cost you anything at all? The Church congregation in the city of Smyrna knew what it would cost them to follow Jesus. For some, it meant they lost everything… their homes, businesses, family members, etc. For other’s in Smyrna it would be that they would be tortured for their faith. And yet for others it would mean dying for their faith in Jesus. Fast forward to 2017, and there remains intense hostility towards Christians many countries around the world. This is truly something foreign to most of us in the United States of America. We would like to invite you to watch the 5 minute YouTube video linked to this message, download the teaching notes, and open your Bible as you prepare to list to Pastor Anton’s message about Christ’s words to the church in Smyrna. We hope and trust that you will be challenged and encouraged in your walk with Jesus.
