Those whom He (Jesus) loves He rebukes and disciplines

“Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest and repent.” – Revelation 3: 19

What a beautiful thing it is – Jesus rebukes and disciplines those He loves! It is a privilege to be loved by the king of kings and the lord of lords. And what a great opportunity it is to correct and refine ourselves through Him who bought us with His blood!

“Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me.” – 20

Yes, Jesus wants to have a meal with His loved ones. What a joy!

“To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.” – 21

Now here’s a promise – If we overcome the temptations of this world and do what is right in His sight, we will sit by our Heavenly Father just like Jesus! Being victorious is being sincere in following His word.
