An encouragement to keep going.
I’m not focussing on one particular part of ‘Revelation’ today, but I share this with you as an encouragement to keep going:
‘Just a few weeks ago, at our church gathering, we read the entire book of Revelation out loud. I started by reading Revelation 1:3: ‘’Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.’’ Isn’t it ridiculous that God promises a blessing to anyone who reads Revelation out loud yet no one actually does this? So we took turns reading a chapter each until all twenty-two chapters were read. It was powerful. The Word of God read simply and without embellishment brought us to a deeper and purer form of worship than anything I could have said.’ Francis Chan: ‘Letters to the Church’, p.59.
