Choose to Be an Overcomer!

In his message to the church at Laodicea, Jesus promises those who buy gold, white robes, and eye salve from him: “All those whom I may love, I convict and instruct. So you must be zealous and you must repent…the one overcoming, I will give to him to sit with Me on My throne” (Revelation 3:19-21).

Do you hear the instructions of Jesus? Your salvation depends on obeying and submitting to what the Holy Spirit speaks to your heart. Jesus said, “My sheep always heed My voice, and I know them, and they always follow Me” (John 10:27).

Does this describe your Christian experience? Or are there areas of rebellion in your life that you’ve been “working on”–perhaps for years? Beloved, do not rest until you’ve overcome sin by faith in Jesus Christ!

The Heart of Jesus

The heart of our risen Lord is reflected clearly in His message to the Laodicean church and has three elements: buy gold refined in the fire; wear white clothes, which represents the righteous deeds and buy salve. In order to walk through the process, we must begin to see ourselves as Jesus sees us which is wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked. Righteousness only comes out of an outer crushing. Will you allow Jesus to do this in your heart or will you remain defiant that you are not part of the Laodicean church?
