Revelation Chapters 2 and 3 Jesus gives warnings and promises to the 7
churches. As we read them we can see that they are timeless and speak to us
warns concerning losing our first love, our love for and obedience to Jesus.
Jesus warns against sexual immorality and idolatry or things that became idols
in our lives and cloud our love for Jesus. If we don’t guard against these
influences we can become like the dead church of Sardis, where worldly
influences had crowded out the things of God.
now for the good news. My goodness me I can hardly write it down it’s so
exciting. Let me try to summarize. Jesus said that the faithful would receive
rewards when we go to be with him in heaven. He talks about a crown of life,
walking in victory in an intimate relationship with Jesus, completely forgiven
and vindicated. Jesus will honor us, we will be God’s possessions forever,
ruling the nations with Jesus and sitting with him on his throne. We will eat
from the tree of life and dine with Jesus; protected and dressed in white.
names are written in the book of life and Jesus says to the Father, these are
mine; these are ours. Wow, that should brighten your day up. The world around
us has nothing for us; let’s keep our eyes on Jesus. The rewards are awesome,
if that’s a strong enough word!
