John Bradshaw - There's Room to Grow
You notice in the letters to the seven churches in Revelation that Jesus affirms and chastises most of the churches. To the church at Pergamos Jesus says as he does to each of the churches, "I know your works", and then he points out several things they're doing right. But then he says, "But I have a few things against you", Revelation 2:14, which is incredibly gracious, because he then goes on to tell them what to do so they can be saved.
You read what the church of Pergamos was getting right, and you'd be impressed. But what Jesus impresses upon them is there's room to grow. His words weren't meant to discourage them, but to encourage them. So look at your life, you'll find there's room to grow. When you find that room to grow, be encouraged by that. Jesus wants to lead you to a higher ground. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
