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.

Praise His Name

Scripture: Revelations 5: [12] In a loud voice they sang:

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”

Observation: The angels in heaven and all the elders sing praise forever to God the Father and Jesus. This sis the way I should be living my life now. To live a life that represents Christ and what He did for me. A life without sin and when I fall short, I repent. A life that is evident to others that I belong to God.

Application: Think before I act. Will my actions and speech honor God? Will my attitude be positive and reflect the glory of my savior? Negative talk will hurt my witness so be positive and content in all my situations.

Prayer: Dear Lord you are worthy of all my love, obedience and praise. Open my heart that everyone around me may see you living in me.

God is Worthy

Scripture: Revelations 4: 11 “You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”

Observation: The Lord is worthy of everything I have and everything that I am. Do I treat Him that way each day? God is my creator and deserves my complete praise, respect, obedience and awe, or is He just sometimes in my thoughts and action.

Application: When I pray to God I need to realize who it is I’m talking to. He is the Alpha, Omega, the creator of all things, my Master and my love and treat Him with the honor, praise and worship He deserves. God demands, and rightfully so, my full obedience, love and time. I need to start giving Him so much more than I do.

Prayer: Dear Father You are so worthy of all that I have and am. You are my creator, my Lord, my Savior and my life. Glory and honor is yours, guide your servant to please you today.
