Summary of passage: Jesus says the church in Thyatira is improving but they are tolerating Jezebel and her teachings, which lead to sexual immorality and idol worship. Jesus intends to make those who commit adultery with her suffer and will kill her children. Those who haven’t followed her Jesus encourages to hold fast to him. If they do, he will give them authority over nations and the morning star.
9) Part personal question. My answer: Jesus says he will give authority over the nations and he will be the one to dash them to pieces (judge them). He will also give believers the morning star (himself). Imbed the truth in my heart and do my best to not be influenced by outsiders and let him be in control.
10) Part personal question. My answer: Jesus’ will for us is to follow him, obeying all of his commands, and to go and make disciples of others for his kingdom. He rewards us with eternal life with the Father. It means everything to me.
Conclusions: Extension of yesterday with emphasis that Jesus is our one, true reward–what we live for, strive for, and serve for. He is our everything.
