Way to Go Philadephia!
Revelation 3:7-13 "And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write: 'The words of the holy one, the true one, who has the key of David, who opens and no one will shut, who shuts and no one opens...
think about it.
What makes the church at Philadelphia so praise worthy (3:8)? How can you incorporate these traits into your life?
The message to the church at Philadelphia (Revelation 3:7-13) gave me an instant lift. I loved the reminder of keeping God's Word and proclaiming Christ. But where that lift really hit was when I was reminded that we can do significant things for the Lord without being significant ourselves or belonging to a big, powerful church. "Behold, I have set before you an open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name" (verse 8).
So regardless of your position, title, authority or power, what are some things you can do for the Lord this week? Plan one action/set one goal and then tell us about it. Tami W.
