Celebrating The Everlasting King – Day 26

Celebrating The Everlasting King – Day 26



Sometimes at Christmas, a loved one should be rebuked. It can be a bad attitude, a focus on the gifts and not the giver, a meanness amidst family. There are a lot of Scriptures on conflict resolution for a reason…we sometimes have a problem getting along.


Thankfully, God has the last word. He is The Amen, literally meaning “so be it.” He knows our hearts. He sees our pain, our struggle, our joy, our deeds. He longs for us to be alive in Him, passionate for His peace, grateful for His blessings, clothed in His righteousness.

Revelation 3:14-22 “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: The Amen, the faithful and true Witness, the Origin of the creation of God, says this: ‘I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of My mouth. Because you say, “I am rich, and have become wealthy, and have no need of anything,” and you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked,  I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to apply to your eyes so that you may see. Those whom I love, I rebuke and discipline; therefore, be zealous and repent. Behold, I stand at the door and knock; if anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will dine with him, and he with Me. The one who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat with My Father on His throne. The one who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.’”

The IBC Women’s Ministry wishes you a Blessed Christmas and a Joyous New Year!
