My journal entry today looked like a “To Do” list. God sees all that I’ve accomplished and my motives and attitudes as I did each task.
Revelation 2:2, “I see what you’ve done, your hard, hard work, your refusal to quit. …” The Message
Jesus sees our hard work, refusal to quit, that we can’t stomach evil, we weed out pretenders, are persistent, courageous, and never wear out. He also sees we walked away from our first love and how far we’ve fallen, Revelation 2:2-5.
He sees our pain and poverty, but also our wealth, Revelation 2:9.
He sees we live on Satan’s turf, continuing boldly, never denying His Name. But also indulging in unholy parties, Revelation 2:13-14.
He sees everything we’re doing for Him, the love, faith, service, and persistence. But we let others mislead into Cross-denying, self-indulging religion, Revelation 2:19-20.
He sees right through our work, our reputation for vigor and zest, but we’re dead. Our busywork is not God’s work, Revelation 3:1-2.
He sees we’ve used our strength to keep His Word and did not deny Him. He will open doors no one can shut and keep us safe in a time of testing, Revelation 3:8, 10.
Father, examine my motives and attitudes. I repent of any that are not pleasing to you. Amen.
July 30, 2019: Revelation 1-3.
