Those Who Hold the Testimony
Scripture: Revelations 6:9 When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained.
Observation: Christians still are being slain for the Word of God. People have devoted their life to the spread of the gospel and others dedicate themselves and their time doing God’s work, but I can’t seem to tear myself away from the television. I pray each day to do God’s will and for Him to take this laziness away.
Application: God has created me for a purpose, but He doesn’t force me to do it. I should be forcing myself to do whatever it takes to get the Word of God out. I need to hold on to the testimony of Christ and live a life that is worth rewards and use my own testimony to help bring others to God.
Prayer: Dear Lord I thank you for your love and creating me to fulfill a purpose in this life. Give me discipline and courage to fulfill the purpose you have created me in glory and honor to You.
