Daily Reading: 11 Aug – The Revelation: Hallelujah! – Revelation 19:1-20:15

“Praise the Lord! For the Lord our God, the Almighty, reigns. Let us be glad and rejoice, and let us give honor to him. For the time has come for the wedding feast of the Lamb, and his bride has prepared herself. She has been given the finest of pure white linen to wear.”

For the fine linen represents the good deeds of God’s holy people.

And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding feast of the Lamb.” And he added, “These are true words that come from God.”

Lord God: as the vision you gave to the Apostle John unfolds this week, give me ears to hear, eyes to see, and a willing spirit to obey your word. Part the heavens, and give me a glimpse into eternity as the end times unfold. May I take to heart your word to the seven churches – both the encouragement and warning. Free me from my sins, and lead me along the path of life – that I may serve faithfully as a priest of your Kingdom, until you return. Amen.

Daily Reading: 04 Aug – The Apostles’ Teaching: Faith and Works – James 1:1-2:26

But don’t just listen to God’s word. You must do what it says. Otherwise, you are only fooling yourselves. For if you listen to the word and don’t obey, it is like glancing at your face in a mirror. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you look carefully into the perfect law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.
