Here is the Faithful Friday word for you today!
Faithful Friday is an initiative from our clergy to further explore the Word of God and to reconnect people with Bible verses
Please feel free to reflect on what each passage means to you and let us know if any of the passages inspire you.
The world around us might be trembling because it’s Friday the 13th, but let’s be those who pick up God’s blessing for reading this book (remember Rev 1:3). The events that are described in these pages are gruesome and tragic; they represent the real trials of those facing persecution from a power that is far greater than themselves. Yet, the umbrella message, arching over the whole book, is ‘remember who is in control’. There’s a key aspect to all of this in 9:20 which indicates that the plagues were meant to prompt people to repentance, but their message was ignored. To repent is to re-think what the situation is, who the power really resides with, who the King is; will we lay our crowns before that King?
