Have you ever received an encouraging note from a friend, just out of the blue? Even a pat on
the back from someone who's a valued friend What a blessing that is. They always seem to come along
at just the right time. Today we'll look again at The Lord's letter to the church in Smyrna, found in
Revelation chapter two. The people in Smyrna were doing a good job in God's eyes - and those are really
the only eyes that count! They were in need of encouragement, just like we are, and the Lord was there
to give it to them!
