A reflection on Revelation 3:7-13,
Christ’s letter to the church in Philadelphia
I do not call you
to human success,
to fulfill grand ambitions, or
to make a great name for yourself.
I call you to a real, living relationship with Me.
Trust Me and
not just with your words,
but with your daily lives, with
every word you speak and
every decision you make.
During my earthly life, I focused on
saying what my Father told me to say and
doing what my Father showed me to do.
Keep your focus the same, and
you will be like Me.
People will see Me in you, and
they will know that you are mine.
As you follow Me,
my Father and I will claim you as Our very own.
We will write Our names on you for everyone to see.
You will belong to Us, and
you will be with Us
now and forever.
just follow Me.
