Time's Up! Choose this day who you're going serve. Skirting the line is no longer the way. Why? Because Christ sacrificed more than we can imagine just to be able to commune with us. So it's time to decide whose side you're on.
Imagine being in a city where you had to compromise the very crux of who you were just to make a living. You had to lay down your religion at every turn so much that it was just another thing that was no longer a staple in your every day life but yet you called yourself a Chrisitan. That's just a taste of what it meant to live in Thyatira.
