Here as in Heaven
As we process this difficult year, let’s be sure to not let it steal our worship. We can thank God that we don’t have to overwhelmed by our circumstances. We can bless His name because He is our victorious God. Let’s lift our eyes to worship Him, and let our lives be brought before Him in humility, surrender, reverence, and full of thanksgiving. In this, we will find our purpose and joy.
At The Throne
In Revelation 4, we see John is in Heaven in the throne room of God. It is filled with His splendor, and the sound of worship is all around. Join with the worship of Heaven today, and know that we, as believers, we will one day be with Him.
To the Church ... at Laodicea
The church of Laodicea is famous for being lukewarm. They invited compromise into their lives and became accustomed to having the people decide. We as a church today need to be on guard against lukewarm living, and we need to instead choose to be a people that is surrendered to the obedience of Christ and refreshing and life giving to others. Let’s walk with Jesus, and let Him do His work in us and through us.
To the Church ... at Philadelphia
In the book of Revelation, there are no negatives mentioned about the church of Philadelphia. They were humble, faithful, and they abounded in brotherly love. Let’s be as the church of Philadelphia, full of love and able to stand as pillars of truth, holiness, and righteousness. And as we do this, He will show us open doors to share His truth.
Pray for Us and U.S. – Praying for Revival for Ourselves And Our Nation
We’ve seen throughout revivals in history that God can move in dark times. May our hearts break for what breaks His, may the next generation know of His greatness, may revival spread everywhere we go, and may we see division in our nation healed. God is moving, even in difficult times.
To The Church… – Part 3
As we look at the churches of Thyratira and Sardis, we can see the call to not compromise, to live in a way where our reality is better than our reputation. We need to keep our focus on loving God and remaining faithful, knowing that kingdom works and endurance will follow. Let’s come to Jesus Christ to clothe us in garments of white, and walk in His purity.
