Revelation 22:12-16 New Living Translation (NLT)
Each week as I share the Word of God, I encourage people to embrace the Truth the Spirit bears witness to in their hearts because we are accountable for living in the Truth once it has been revealed. In our passage today, the Apostle John shares a Word from the Lord reiterating the importance of keeping our lives free from the influence of evil; to wash our robes is to walk away from sinful living. To do so requires us to invite the Spirit to break the chains of any bondage that seeks to hold us captive so we can embrace the Light of Truth and the Way of Righteousness. Because of this Word, live in a “Lighter” place today than you did yesterday.
12 “Look, I am coming soon, bringing my reward with me to repay all people according to their deeds. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
14 Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will be permitted to enter through the gates of the city and eat the fruit from the tree of life. 15 Outside the city are the dogs—the sorcerers, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idol worshipers, and all who love to live a lie.
16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne.[a] I am the bright morning star.”
Prayer: Lord, thank you for the Light of Truth that reminds me to walk away from any sin that seeks to enslave or rob me of the abundant life. Please continue to lead me in the paths of righteousness. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
