Today, Jesus brings us a letter to the church in Pergamum. It's a Letter to the Sort of Faithful, and it's a word that cuts like a sword, warning false teachers and worshippers of false idols that He sees right through their deceit. He also, though, provides a word of encouragement to the unswerving, those who are truly faithful. When our life in Christ is at its most challenging, He will provide us with soul-sustaining manna. Don't give up!
