Jesus seventh and final letter is to the church in the prosperous commercial city of Laodicea, another very bad church.  Jesus used interesting real life examples  to show their spiritual poverty, blindness, and ‘lukewarm’ that’s about to be spit out.  We learn what is to “be zealous” (or “earnest” in NIV), and we learn Jesus knocks on the door of his own church asking to come in.  As always, we should listen carefully to what Jesus thinks of and says to the Church.
