Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To those who are victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
Jesus uses the Holy Spirit to speak to his people, his churches, in the second and third chapter of the book of Revelation. But don’t you believe that if we seek God and are striving to worship God empowered by the Spirit, then the Spirit will also speak to us in fresh and powerful ways through God’s word? When we open the Bible, more happens than mere reading! The Spirit who inspired that word also convicts us and calls out to us and corrects us and seeks to conform us to the will of God and the character of Jesus. So let’s open our Bibles with expectation that the Spirit will use these old words in fresh and new ways and give us new insights for our old battles.
O God, help me hear your Word in the ways you want me to hear it. Shape and make me more like Jesus, your Living Word and Ultimate Word, as the Spirit works on my heart. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
