You've Got MailEveryone loves to receive mail, especially when it’s from someone we deeply love or respect. How much more, then, would we long to know what Jesus would say in a letter to us? The truth is that He did write letters to His Church – specifically, to seven first century churches – and sent His mail through the Apostle John in the Book of Revelation. As Alistair Begg guides us through these letters, we learn that the issues addressed by the Lord Jesus 2000 years ago are timeless in their application. Churches and individual Christians today face the same challenges, and we need to hear the same words of warning and encouragement as those early believers: words that say He knows our circumstances; words that call us to reject compromise; words that promise faithfulness will be rewarded in the coming Kingdom. The risen Lord Jesus has sent the Church some mail. Are we prepared to read what He’s written?
