Revelation 1:17 - 2:7
Amos continually preached the message of social justice, but in Revelation, the Son of Man steps forward to continue the sermon. Christ makes it clear that He continues to be in control. As He addresses the church at Ephesus, we have to consider the kind of Christian we are to be.
Through the season of preparation for the coming of Christ, he reminds us of the virtues of faithfulness, patience, and action. He reminds us, too, not to abandon the love that distinguishes us from the world. Central to the virtues is love.
While we consider his coming to us, let us take time to dig deep and find even more love to reach out into the world.
