This Sunday, I’ll be teaching about the church in Smyrna, in Revelation 2. It’s week 3 of the churches, and we have 4 more weeks to go.

One of the major benefits on Revelation 2-3 is the insight that it provides us into what Jesus looks for in a church. That’s valuable because we can easily get carried away with our critical ideas of what we want in a church, while forgetting to focus most heavily on what Jesus focused on.

So, out of curiosity, I wanted to pose this question:


If you’re a Christian and/or church-goer, leave a comment about the excuses you’ve heard non-church-goers use.

If you’re NOT a Christian and/or church-goer, I would love to hear what’s keeping you at a distance. Leave a comment and let me know!
