Day 252/260: Read Revelation 14
Even in a highly symbolic, apocalyptic book such as the book of Revelation, the importance of evangelism is on full display.
Understand this: every Christian has a part to play in evangelism. Whether it is preaching from the pulpit or knocking on doors or having casual yet spiritual conversations with friends, you have a duty to spread the good news.
The angel “having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people” proclaimed the importance of fearing God and giving Him glory.
This echoes the preacher of Ecclesiastes: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: fear God and keep His commandments, for this is man’s all. For God will bring every work into judgment, including every secret thing, whether good or evil” (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14).
The evangelistic angels of Revelation commanded their listeners to worship God and warned against the worship of the beast. Today, we must spread the good news and lovingly warn the rebellious of the severity of God.
Memory (Copy into a notebook 5-10 times)
Revelation 14:13. Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write: ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”
Pray for opportunities to reach out to someone you know that needs the good news of Christ’s gospel.
