Meditating the Word of God – 21st December
Today’s verse is from the Book of Revelation 3:3. Let’s examine the portion in four versions of the Bible.
Go back to what you heard and believed at first; hold to it firmly. Repent and turn to me again. If you don’t wake up, I will come to you suddenly, as unexpected as a thief. (version NLT)
These declarations are based on the Word of God (Bible). Declare these with understanding and with faith.
I have inherited the kingdom of God as I am righteous. My righteousness is through Jesus Christ. (1 Corinthians 6:9)
The verse we look at is from the Gospel of Luke 6:47-48. We have it in 3 versions.
I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to me, listens to my teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. (version NLT)
