"Closed on Sunday" is a challenge not to play by societal rules, but rather to be wise, courageous and discerning of the times and always honor God in all you say and do. "Closed on Sunday" is about taking a stand to keep certain principled things sacred in one's life. In a time when nothing is to be revered, respected, or protected, the message behind the song reboots the computer and reissues a challenge to affirm things without expecting to gain the approval or acceptance of society.

Hot, Cold, or Lukewarm?
Sid Martin • Amboy Friends Church • Sermon • • 15 views • 20:33
How are you with Jesus right now? Are you hot-following Jesus? Are you cold-searching for Jesus? Are you lukewarm-wandering and confused? In Revelation 3 we are told that if we are lukewarm, He will spit us out.
What the Spirit Says to the Churches
Jesus had nothing good to say about the church at Laodicea. The church had decieved itself into think everything was okay, but the opposite was true. They were in desperate need of revival or they would be diciplined.
What the Spirit Says to the Churches
Crosspoint Community Church • Sermon • • 10 views • 33:28
There is a church that thinks they have no need. They say, “I am rich. I have prospered. I need nothing.” Jesus says that they do not realize how bad off they are. They have no idea that they are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. This church seems like they are beyond hope. And yet, as hopeless as the church sounds here, Jesus calls them to Himself. He calls them to see how much they need Him.

Church in Crisis In our text this morning you will find that the Laodicean Church wasn't working. In a series of messages to the 7 churches in the Book of Revelation this is the last church addressed by Jesus, and out of all of them it is the worst church. One would think that Jesus would commend them…
