Between “The Rock” and a Hard Place

When we face pressure and stress, it either pushes us toward God or away from Him!

The church at Smyrna (Revelation 2:8-17) was faithful in spite of intense persecution. They needed no correction from Jesus, only encouragement to continue. However some at the Pergamum church had opted for a more progressive version of the faith that allowed immorality and worship of pagan idols. Jesus told them to repent or face His punishment.

What pressure or pain are you facing? Be inspired by others who have gone before you and stay faithful. Jesus promises to help you and to give “hidden manna” for strength!
