The Challenge To Obedient Dependence

October 30, 2011

(Revelations 3:7-13)

Jesus assures the Philadelphian Church of eternity, reorienting them God-ward, so they can endure persecution and suffering. An eternal perspective can enable us to live with right priorities during times of prosperity and that can enable us to endure faithfully and with hope during times of hardship and suffering.

(Sermon preached at The Falls Church on the occasion of the commissioning of Christ Church Vienna)
