The Scripture – Galatians 6: 1 – 10
It is well to be reminded that each of us has a spiritual responsibility to those who are around us – especially to those within our earthly and spiritual families. In Christian love, this involves reflecting the spirit of Christ by helping and doing good as we have opportunity; But it also in loving concern means gently and humbly dealing with those who are caught up in sin, all for the welfare of precious souls.

The Sermon ………………………… Revelation 2: 12 – 17

To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of Him Who has the sharp, double-edged sword. I know where you live – where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to My Name. You did not renounce your faith in me, even in the days of Antipas,my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city, where Satan lives. Nevertheless, I have a few things against you:You have people there who hold to the teaching of Balaam, who taught Balak to entice the Israel- ites to sin by eating food sacrificed to idols and by committing sexual immorality. Likewise, you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Repent, therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He who has an ear to ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some fo the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.
