Jesus is speaking to the church that has been faithful in this section. How can we examine ourselves accordingly? Jesus, lists Himself as true. This section can really encourage us to press on. I think at times we forget the God of the book of Revelation that is so strong, and powerful, and fearsome. But they are the same. He that is merciful, is also He that is just. An encouragement for today is to not deny His name in our lives. That means more than just saying you believe in Him. Do you believe His name is stronger than your temptation? Do you believe He is faithful to the end? Live your profession that He is Christ, and your God out daily. For He is coming quickly.
