Se7en – Smyrna: Hang In There (Part 2)
To the church at Smyrna.
We will see that Jesus commends this church for their perseverance through suffering and for their eternal perspective in the midst of poverty. He doesn’t promise them that things will get better – in fact, He tells them it will get worse. But he does promise them ‘the crown of life’ and that they will ‘not be hurt by the 2nd death’.
