We are told not to worry, but how do we go about not worrying?
We need to go back to God’s word and ask the Holy Spirit for wisdom for the common good.
Using the steps of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, we need to roll away the stone, obey what Jesus tells us to do and be part of a community that can support and hold us accountable.
We need to repent and take Jesus’ warnings seriously!
We are to examine ourselves and listen to what Christ is saying to us and the seven churches
Three qualities that Jesus commends the church are characteristics we need to examine our lives against – we know our weakness is made strong through Jesus alone, we are soaked and dedicated to His word and obey it, we persevere to the end.
It’s time to Wake up! Remember, Repent and Do.
How does our understanding of tolerance line up with Jesus’s view?
Have we grown distant from the Lord and fallen to temptation for personal reward.
Taking comfort in knowing Jesus is the beginning and the end. To then stand up for our faith in Jesus and we will receive a crown of eternal life.
