Hi, today my brother preached on Revelation 1:1-7 where John is encouraging the Galatians and then rebuking them, and then encouraging them again.
1. Encouraging, my brother pointed out that John encouraged them by saying that they couldn’t tolerate wicked people and that they had done good works.
2. Rebuking, my brother pointed out that John rebuked them by telling the Galatians to look at the height from which they had fallen and by telling the Galatians to repent.
3. Encouraging again, my brother said that John encouraged the Galatians again by saying that they hated the Nicolaitans and that God hated them too.
My brother also got the Gospel in this passage by saying that we are conquerors but the reason that we are conquerors is because Jesus conquered sin for us. Jesus died for us and gave us life, now we are conquerors.
I hope you liked my summary!
Grace and truth, Charity Cleveland.
