Bible Reading: Revelation 2:8-10
Friday, July 1, 2016
This experience reminds me of my Christian life. Sometimes I am sick or have financial problems or have an argument with my friend. These things frustrate and confuse me.
In our Bible Reading for today, Jesus spoke to the church at Smyrna. These Christians faced troubles, too. But Jesus encouraged them by saying, “...be faithful, even if you have to die. If you continue to be faithful, I will give you the reward of life” (verse 10b).
When I face problems in my life, I need to remember Jesus’ words. Then I will continue following and serving God every day. — BF*
“Great blessings belong to those who are tempted and remain faithful! After they have proved their faith, God will give them the reward of eternal life.” James 1:12a
PRAYER: God, I want to stay faithful to You every day of my life. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
