While Smyrna was a city of great beauty, the Christians there suffered terribly under the oppression of Roman law and religious opposition. However, John’s letter would encourage these believers to persevere, thus providing a powerful example for Christians of every age who endure hardship for the cause of Christ. While Jesus’ followers will suffer in this world, God’s careful care and certain reward prompts believers to faithfulness.
