Thursday of the Last Week in Kingdomtide
As you read these letters to the seven churches, catch the essence of the point of John’s writing to each of them. Evils that attack the church from within beset them.
Does your heart nod, acknowledging any of these points as applying to you? If so, repent. Also, hear these letters as though you yourself were one of the churches to whom John is writing. Thus your repentance will not only be personal, but communal, as you ask the Lord’s forgiveness for how the Church today has fallen into the same areas of sin as these early communities. Intercede for the Body of Christ as you read and pray.
An evening supper with the Lord in the Book of Revelation marks this last Thursday of Kingdomtide.
Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament, except the Gospels. During the season of Kingdomtide this year, we read 1 Corinthians.
