We started the study of Revelation 2-3 with a blog on hearing and overcoming. Each of the seven churches had something they needed to overcome. Since seven is the number of completion, I believe the information obtained on the churches covers the main problem areas that believers need to address in their Christian walk. In the closing address to the church of Laodicea Jesus said, “…..even as I also overcame” (3:21b), which shows believers that there were areas that the man Jesus had to contend and triumph over. Let us follow His lead and overcome:

  1. The decline of a relationship with Jesus
  2. Fear of suffering
  3. Acceptance of false doctrines
  4. Compromising  godly moral practices
  5. Spiritual lethargy
  6. Surrendering to worldly pressures (letting go)
  7. Lack of commitment

Remember, this is what Jesus desires of believers:

  1. Relationship
  2. Faithfulness unto death
  3. Repentance
  4. Seekers of truth
  5. Watchfulness
  6. Steadfastness
  7. Commitment

As you do your own personal study, your list may differ from the ones stated. The Holy Spirit may cause you to focus on specific areas of your life that you need to overcome. Go with what He gives you. Our main purpose is to be an overcomer and please God.
