[QTVOTD] Beautiful confirmation…

“I know your [record of] works and what you are doing. See! I have set before you a door wide open which no one is able to shut; I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept My Word and guarded My message and have not renounced or denied My name.” Revelation 3:8 ->me: These are the words of Jesus to the church at Philadelphia.  In verse 7 He outlined His authority and petition for the church to listen to the only 100% reliable source of truth.  This verse (vs 8) is an answer to prayer.  This last Thursday I had the honor of praying and pouring over the effects of busyness on our lives with 5 other men at church.  One of those men also works at Microsoft and we began a discussion about starting up a regular lunch at work where we could invite others to join and pray for our co-workers and be ready to seize opportunities to win others Christ and build up those who starting out or languishing in their Christian walks.  Ok, there was the preamble – now the meat.  I like to read the above verse with the third sentence first.  As Christians at MS we are few and therefore our power/strength of influence is light, but we stay true.  We do not denounce our Savior and we keep His word and message. [now onto the first sentence] Jesus knows of what we have done and what we are currently doing.  I have set a door before you wide open which no one is to shut.  We are to move forward and if Jesus has opened the door then there is a mission to be done!  This is answered prayer and I can’t wait to talk more about this on our first lunch together this coming Wednesday!  Here are some more supporting scriptures I found regarding this door being opened – Acts 14:27, 1 Corinthians 16:9 (so good!), and 2 Corinthians 2:12.
