CHAPTER READ: Revelation 2
SCRIPTURE SELECTED: Revelation 2:7
7 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
OBSERVATION: The word of the Lord goes out to four of the churches in Chapter 2. In each instance, the words: “Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches” are used. All four times we also hear the words: “To the one who is victorious…” You realize that these messages deal with “life and death” issues and are vitally important. They are given to each Church with the intense desire that they listen and are victorious! The Lord wants us to reap the blessing of obedience.
APPLICATION: The messages to each of the Churches is tailored for each Church. I need to see that the same Spirit is still speaking today and His message is tailored for our Church. His heart hasn’t changed. The issues at stake are just as vital. The Lord wants us to be victorious The question is…are we listening to Him as He speaks to us?
PRAYER: Lord, I want to be victorious! I’m listening to your voice today. May I hear it in the messages which you spoke to the Churches in Revelation and may I hear Your Spirit speak as You apply truth to our situation here in Kailua. May I hear and obey! Amen
