Why Do We Leave Our First Love?

Aug 20, 2023    Pastor Tim Steele

As we continue in Revelation, we look primarily at the first three chapters of the book. John is on the Island of Patmos for preaching about Jesus. Chapters 2–3 of Revelation address the seven churches John greeted in Chapter 1. Only two churches did not have Criticism: Smyrna (2:8–11) and Philadelphia (3:7–13). These churches were in what is known as modern Turkey. Thank you for joining us at Cross Waves Church as we look at these seven churches.

In this week’s joke, After 37 years of marriage, Jake dumped his wife for his young secretary. His new girlfriend demanded that they live in Jake and Edith’s multi-million dollar home. Since Jake had better lawyers, he prevailed. He gave Edith, his now ex-wife, just three days to move out.
