I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.
Revelation 3:11 NIV
We have been given salvation in Christ Jesus. Paul the Apostle says God bought you with a high price. He allowed His Son to die for our sins and mine, our salvation didn't come free or cheap but it involved great sacrifice. (1 Corinthians 6:20)
Jesus told John the Apostle that He is coming soon. He is on His way coming to take His spotless and blameless Church out of this world. He encouraged us to hold what we have, so that no one will take our crowns. This means there are people or things that can take our away your crown.
We can jump and conclude that the devil is the one who is planning to take away our crowns. Yes the devil is the number one enemy who is doing whatever he cans to destroy the work of God in us. But there are people who live unrighteous life who can also influence us negative and take us away from God. The love of money can take us away from God, and cause us to concentrate on seeking it day and night.
This morning, I want to encourage you to hold on what you have. If Jesus saved you and delivered you from sin, then you shouldn't get to the life you once denounced. Continue living the holy life in Chris Jesus, continue to pray, fast and walk in the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The enemy won't go down without a fight; he will try to fight you every day that you he may win back to his kingdom. Don't let Him draw you back to his wicked kingdom; fight the good fight of faith that you may overcome whatever things that they may tempt you to sin. God will help you in every step if you will completely put your trust in Him.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, I'm asking that You may help to live a holy life in Christ Jesus. Help me to fight a good fight of faith that I may hold of the eternal life to which I have been called in Christ Jesus. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
