“Let anyone who has an ear listen to what the Spirit is saying to the churches.”
- Revelation 3:13, NRSV
by: Tim Emmons, 2017 Virlina District Conference Moderator
Can you visualize the apostle John as he looked out over the waters of the Aegean Sea? Can you imagine the broad range of his emotions as he endured isolation and separation from the beloved saints in the church at Ephesus? Surely his accommodations were not those of a luxurious sea resort. As we peer into his heart and mind, we can certainly detect thoughts of his awareness of his own mortality and a certain discomfort with his current plight. But we can also see, in his mind and heart, his memories of his life with Jesus and the wondrous miracles and teachings which were presented with the authority of the One who is God.
