Revelation of John 2:13
I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is. Yet you hold fast my name, and you did not deny my faith even in the days of Antipas my faithful witness, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells.
The church in Pergamum was in a tough spot.
It was located where evil was rampant and Antipas was killed as a result of the environment they were in.
Yet it held on to Christ.
It wasn’t perfect but it held on.
Are you the only believer in the household?
Are you the only worker trying to do the right thing whilst everyone else does the easy but wrong thing?
Hang on. A singular burning candle sheds light in a darkened room. Its light may not be cast unto the furthest corners but at least, for now, the room has light. What was done in darkness is now shown for what it is.
And after a while, if it burns long enough, another candle gets lit.
