Standing Firm In Suffering - Revelation 2:8-11 - 4/26/2015

Even though the church of Smyrna endured harsh persecution, they stood firm in the Christ.  Jesus commended the church for their faith and promised them that their suffering was only temporary.  The promise of heaven gave them great comfort.  As for today, we need to be strong in any persecution we face.  God is with us and He is the true meaning of life.
