Laodicea: The Lukewarm Church

Of all the churches in Revelation 2-3, the last one—Laodicea—is probably the most pitiful. Their half-hearted approach to Christ made Him sick. In fact, a careful study of this letter shows that Jesus had nothing good to say about the Laodiceans. If Ephesus was loveless and Sardis lifeless, then Laodicea was worthless. As we study the letter to Laodicea, we will find it to be both a megaphone and a mirror—a megaphone warning us not to repeat her sins and a mirror to see if we have any of the same traits.
