And so we have come to the end of Luke’s accounts of the words Jesus spoke directly to His disciples. We will now look at those He spoke to John as He dictated letters to the seven Churches in the book of Revelation. How do they relate to us today? Jesus said to John:
Write on a scroll what you see and send it to the seven churches: to Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia and Laodicea. Revelation 1:11
Today you are invited to consider how you respond when God gives you a strange instruction. Do you believe it is God speaking or do you question Him? How do you decide? And when you have decided, what do you do? Do you write letters, make phone calls, visit people, at His command? Why/why not? How do you feel once you have made your decision to act or not? What would have been the consequences if John had not done what Jesus said? What are the consequences if you decide not to follow that inner voice?
May God bless you with wisdom and discernment as He speaks to you today.
