One church is obviously weak, and shut out as being rejected by God, but clings to Jesus recognizing that He is everything they have and immeasurable more than they need. Another church is unaware of their desperate need of the grace of Jesus and are therefore unaffected by it. Christ tells the weak church to continue to cling to humble faith in him, and the other church to turn to humble faith in him. If they HEAR his Word, they will permanently enjoy Jesus' place at the table in the Kingdom of Heaven.
