The Church In Philadelphia

SCRIPTURE: “I‘m coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”  
(Rev. 3:11-13 NIV)

Christians have differing gifts, abilities, experiences, and maturity. God doesn’t expect us all to be and act the same, but He does expect us to “hold on” to what we have, persevere in using our resources for Him. The Philadelphians are commended for their effort to obey and encouraged to hold tightly to whatever strength they have.  You may be a new believer and feel that your faith and spiritual strength are little. Use what you have to live for Christ, and God will commend you. The new Jerusalem is the future dwelling of the people of God. We will have new citizenship in God’s future Kingdom, and everything will be new, pure, and secure.
