BACKGROUND AROUND THESE CHURCHES
1. Strong commercialism & trades generating good wealth.
2. Strong religious pagan temples to gods and goddesses (sexual immorality, idolatry)
3. Strong imperial cult pressure to declare the Roman Emperor/Caesar as god and Lord over all.
4. Strong opposition against Christians for not assimilating into cultural expectations, etc.

STUDY/REFLECTION QUESTIONS
1. Does it encourage you or make you nervous realizing Jesus knows all about your faith journey with Him?
2. How does today's culture try to pressure you to fit in?
3. What would happen to you if you were more public about your obedient faith-walk with Jesus Christ?
4. What does Jesus LOVE/COMMEND to His churches (Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum)?
5. What areas does Jesus CONFRONT these churches?
6. What actions does Jesus call upon these churches so He doesn't remove their lampstand?
7. How could you rekindle your love for Jesus?
8. What are some benefits/blessings/rewards of repentance?
9. Invite Jesus to examine your heart and make known any areas you need to confess and repent of. Thank God for His amazing grace to forgive and cleanse us (1 John 1:9)!

"The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD turn his face toward you and give you peace." - Numbers 6:22-26
