What Would Jesus Say To The Church?
“The Church at Philadelphia”
Steve Reed | 08.03.14
“Write this letter to the angel of the church in Philadelphia. This is the message from the one who is holy and true,â€¨ the one who has the key of David.â€¨What he opens, no one can close;â€¨ and what he closes, no one can open: “I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close. You have little strength, yet you obeyed my word and did not deny me. Look, I will force those who belong to Satan’s synagogue—those liars who say they are Jews but are not—to come and bow down at your feet. They will acknowledge that you are the ones I love. “Because you have obeyed my command to persevere, I will protect you from the great time of testing that will come upon the whole world to test those who belong to this world. I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take away your crown. All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God—the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name. “Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” Rev. 3: 7-13
1. What doors has God opened for me?What door would I hope for him to open?
2. Am I comfortable walking through any door God might open, or am I anchored?
3. What is the name God has given me? Have I discovered my place in the world?
4. How far have I come in freeing myself from earthly or religious, or personal anchors?
