Epistle: Revelation 7:9-17 (Easter 4: Series C)

Do you really believe with all the saints that the church is one in Christ? Or are you the pragmatist who teaches your people that the church is broken, filled with sinners and false doctrine, and only in heaven will things be perfect? Have you complained that your people are not as holy as they ought to be or reverent as they should be? Have you complained about your brothers in Christ’s ministry and pressed a wedge between your congregation and theirs? This texts does not teach us to complain about the church but to confess the church—and she is marvelous!
