A reflection on Revelation 2:12-17,
Christ’s letter to the church in Pergamum.
As human creatures, our ignorance runs deep.
There is so much we cannot know on our own.
Powerful spiritual beings can easily deceive us.
But we can know the truth,
absolute and unchanging,
through the Spirit of Jesus Christ living within us.
We spend so many of our words spouting what is
Our speech can be so meaningless.
But we can speak the truth
clearly and boldly
as the Spirit of Truth speaks through us.
We are weak,
and evil presses in from all around.
But we can live the truth
as we simply trust the
all-loving Spirit of God.
Father, keep us true,
each of us and all of us,
individually and together.
Make us Your
through the indwelling Spirit of Christ.
