Sermon Reflections 70

Smyrna: Poor but Rich
Revelation 2:9-12
September 24, 2017
 
FRAMING IT UP
In remembering the sermon, answer these questions: 
 
What was the cause of the church’s impoverishment in such an affluent city?
How does Jesus identify with the church in Smyrna in their poverty and tribulation?
What did Jesus mean by saying there are people who “say they are Jews and are not”? Why is this important?
What does the 10 days in verse 10 signify?
 
FILLING IT IN
Take some time to meditate on the same truth in these verses:
 
2 Corinthians 4; Romans 8; Romans 2:28-29; Romans 9:6; Galatians 3:26-29
 
WORKING OUT YOUR SALVATION
 
As believers in Jesus in this age of tribulation where do our riches truly lie?
 
How does the reality of the resurrection and future glory (the crown of life) motivate us to run the race with endurance and finish well?
