Seven Churches (1)

Seven is an important number in the Bible. In our Bible verses for today we see that when God created the world, He rested on the seventh day. God told Noah to take seven pairs of clean animals into the ark. For the Israelites, the seventh year was a year of rest for the land. The Gospel books of the New Testament record that Jesus spoke seven times when He was hanging on the cross.
The number seven is also mentioned many times in the book of Revelation. John talks about seven churches in Asia, seven golden lampstands, seven stars and many other things.
For the next few days we will learn about the seven churches that John mentions in Revelation, chapters 2 and 3. We will read Jesus’ messages for these churches and apply those messages to our lives.
Thank God today for His Word, the Bible. Thank Him for the wonderful world He made for you.
