Revelation of John 2:19
I know what you do. I know your love, faith, service, and endurance. I also know that what you are doing now is greater than what you did at first.
The church in Thyathira wasn’t perfect but God commended it for its faith, its service and its endurance.
And on top of that, it wasn’t staying at the same level of commendable faith, service and endurance. The things this church did – It wasn’t a quota it met to get someone off its back about the issue but it endeavored to do more – God commends it for doing more now than what it did at first.
The sign of nominal Christianity is this.
It is a religion that seeks to fulfill a rite, a routine, a program rather than a faith that is dynamic, relational and constantly growing.
Seek to grow from strength to strength.
