Imagine getting a letter from the Creator of the Universe, the Head of the Church, Jesus Christ. Then you open the letter. At the top of the letter addressed to your name, is His eternal name and what He is holding in His hand. Then in the first line of the first paragraph are these words; “I know your works…”
What would you be thinking and feeling, even before you read another word? You realize that He knows everything about you and there is absolutely nothing hidden from His eyes or knowledge. Does your life and ministry flash across your mind? In seconds, you could make a list of things you did, words you spoke, feelings you harbored that you now wish could be erased?
Then you continue reading His letter. Do tears come to your eyes as you read His accurate account of your public and private record? Will the next sentences of Jesus express in very clear terms how He feels about the way you dishonored His name? Then you read these words “unless you repent…”
Or will His next words be expressions of appreciation for how you have stood faithful in the face of opposition; when others ran after false teachers, you stood for the truth in spite of the cost?
Whatever your letter says to you, there is a final sentence that you can’t overlook. You read it over and over, pondering the invitation; “To the one who conquers…” You now have a decision to make. What will you do? (Read Revelation 2 and 3).
