Perhaps the most unlikely words to be uttered by the Lord Jesus Christ are in our Bibles this morning. Jesus says in modern terms of the church in Laodicea, “You make me sick!”
As we open to Revelation 3:14-22, Jesus writes a letter that all scholars conclude is the most piercing, stinging, and scathing letter He ever wrote to any church.
Jesus Christ, Lord and Purchaser with His own blood of His Church: is very troubled.
For the first time, after six other letters to churches: Jesus has NOTHING good to say about this church. The other six each has something Jesus could commend, but not here. He has nothing good to say about this church.
