July 10, 2016 “The Truly Rich Church” – Rev.2:8-11 cd#1605

Smyrna

Sunday 10AM & 6:30 PM – 465 Tesconi Circle, Santa Rosa, 95401

The Church at Smyrna was being persecuted, and with that persecution came material poverty. Jesus said He understood their poverty, yet He said they were rich. The Christians in Smyrna were rich in the things that mattered; Righteousness, Peace and Joy.  You can’t really measure your riches by your bank account. The true measure of riches is kept in heaven. The treasures you’ve laid up in heaven are your eternal riches.  Many poor people on earth will be wealthy in heaven, and many wealthy people on earth will be impoverished in eternity. Christians should lay up for themselves treasures in heaven.
