Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Rev. 2:10
It’s amazes me at how quickly and easily some turn away from the faithful path. When bad news comes, they are the first to want prayer and all of sudden end up in church. But, when the all clear sounds, well… it’s back to business as usual… and it’s usually a business without faithfully serving the Master’s business.
God never promised that the faithful life would be easy. In fact there will be difficult times and interruptions, often, because you are a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. The devil doesn’t care about your confession… he just doesn’t want you to be faithful. But listen to this word from our Master...
These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world. John 16:33
Oh, beloved… if your faithfulness has slipped, choose again Who you will serve and get back at it. At worlds end there is a "crown of life”… but it’s only for those who are faithful to the end! Of course you're gonna want to be there to get your “faithful crown”, won’t you??
