Everyone 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 the Son of God did write letters to His church—specifically, to seven first-century churches—sending them 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 two thousand years ago are timeless in their application. Churches and individual Christians today face the same challenges as those early believers, and we need to hear the same words of warning and encouragement—words that say He knows our circumstances, that call us to reject compromise, and that promise faithfulness will be rewarded in the coming kingdom. Are we prepared to read what the risen Christ has written?
