You have kept my word
What a relief to get to the sixth of seven letters and know that there’s no rebuke attached to it. Jesus commends and encourages them. That’s it. After the challenging messages we’ve heard already, this comes as welcomed relief in advance of hearing a very tough seventh and final letter next Sunday! The church in Philadelphia—the city of brotherly love—was reassured by Jesus in this letter in light of the crushing burdens they were facing as believers. For anyone who is feeling the weight of things right now, my hope is that you would be encouraged by the Word this week.

Jesus opens and closes all doors (v. 7), and so we should be encouraged…
…to persevere in his work (v. 8)
With great power comes great responsibility.
We glorify God by making more and better disciples of Jesus who love God and love people
…to await his vindication (v. 9)
…to lean hard on his promises (v. 10-13)
