Daniel 11-12, Revelation 3
Lord, help me to not be a lukewarm Christian…I want to be on FIRE for Jesus! “15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”
19 Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me.
Often I look as lessons from God as painful-but as we see here… If He didn’t love us He wouldn’t be trying to teach us about our ways and bring Him back to Him. For only he truly knows what lies ahead, and if they are even remotely as terrifying as John describes and illustrates in Revelation then I’ll take the temporary pain from lessons from God ANYDAY!!
Yes!! That jumped out at me today too :)
Daniel 11:35 Some of the wise will stumble, so that they may be refined, purified and made spotless until the time of the end, for it will still come at the appointed time.
I noticed that verse too! Comforting that our trials are for a good purpose!
Amen, there is grace to be found in our mistakes and shortcomings and dark twisty ness
Lots of warnings in revelations. Need to be open to hear the instruction. Sometimes hard to understand.
