Topic: I Know Your Works V [Friday 20, October 2017]

Memorise: "Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak." - Matthew 26:41

Read: Revelation 3:1-6

1 And unto the angel of the church in Sardis write; These things saith he that hath the seven Spirits of God, and the seven stars; I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead.

2 Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die: for I have not found thy works perfect before God.

3 Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.

4 Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.

5 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

6 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Bible In One Year: Mark 14. Hymn: Sing Hymn 4 - Take My Life And Let It Be

MESSAGE:

Our Lord Jesus Christ is the most practical personality that has ever lived on earth. This should not be surprising; since He is both God and man; He came to show us the way to live a victorious and fulfilled life. He affirmed that He came that we may have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). Our compassionate Lord, who would not want anyone, particularly those who have confessed Him as Lord to perish, is here in today's reading, warning the Church to remember how they started and hold fast the Word of truth.

Another interesting lesson we must learn from today's reading is that the Almighty God knows the state and details our lives, both spiritually and physically. However, you have to watch over your soul in this perverse generation and pray always if you will be worthy at the end of time. Moreover, the Lord promised that He would judge individuals in the church according to each person's deeds. There shall be no collective responsibility when it comes to spiritual accountability.

Action Point: Since the Lord knows your works; take a self-examination of yourself and see where you need to repent, watch and pray for restoration.
