Revelation 21:8 Scritpture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Revelation 21:8

But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death. 


A couple weeks ago, I was reading this list of people who aren’t going to get into Heaven, and worse than that, are going to go to Hell. The very first kind of person it lists is the cowardly, then the unbelieving! I couldn’t believe it was in that order, and then after Randy Warner’s sermon yesterday, it started to click! It took guts for Randy to get up there and admit he struggles with pride, but in sharing, he not only gave God glory but showed each one of us that even someone who has been walking with the Lord that long can still struggle! It spoke volumes to me!


It takes guts to love someone who will never love you back, it takes guts to forgive someone who will probably turn around and sin against you again, it takes guts to admit when you are wrong and ask for forgiveness, it takes guts to ask God to reveal your sin to you and help you fix it! It takes guts to swim against the current when everything around you is telling you you’re wrong! 


I want to have so much courage, boldness, and love that when my feet hit the ground in the morning, the devil says, “Run, he is awake!” But that kind of courage doesn’t come from within. It comes from above! Let’s get closer to Jesus today and let Him strengthen our backbones!!!


I love you all! God bless! Let’s give our Mighty God all the glory!!
