Straight talk

We all those friends, the ones who will look us in the eye and tell us straight to our face exactly what we need to hear, whether it hurts us or not. We often wonder how they can be so brutal but in hind sight we learn that they had our best interest at heart.

In Revelation 2 we see Jesus doing this in His message to 4 of the 7 churches to whom He instructed John to write too. He is careful to give them praise for the things that they have done well but He also speaks bluntly about the areas that they are failing in.

What were these failures that angered the heart of God?

To the Ephesians, it was that they had lost their first love for God. To Smyrna He spoke of their blasphemy and serving Satan. To Pergamos it was their following of false doctrine. To Thyatira it was their sexual immorality.

To all these offenses we may quickly claim that we are innocent but the same warning is given to each of these churches at the end of their message: He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.

We would do well to check our hearts carefully before dismissing the word of God. Let us rather draw near to God and repent and allow Him to do a new work within us.
