he Final Letter from our "Dear NAC: 7 Letters From Jesus" series. The seventh letter is to the church in Laodecia This is my (Jonathan's) favourite of the 7 letters (Is that weird to have favourites?) It's an iconic letter that includes phrases you've definitely heard before. It includes perhaps the most dramatic rebuke... your "lukewarmness" makes me want to spew you from my mouth. But it also includes Jesus' most tender invitation... "Behold, I stand at your door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends." And then in between, Jesus makes some observations about the church that are SO insightful, you'd think He'd been reading their diary. Maybe Jesus has been reading your diary... or your heart... and has a word for you too. Will you let Him in though?
