Hi, I’m Jeri Hill with Together In the Harvest. I want to speak today on Revelations 12:11, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to death.”
God wants us to be an overcomer. He wants us to be drawn so close to Him that we can overcome every single thing in our lives that are not pleasing to Him. He wants us to have victory in our lives. And then, when we get that victory, not only victory, He wants us to share our testimonies with other people and we bring honor and glory to Him and to His power and what He can do in our lives.
We share with people our testimony of what He has brought us out of and what He can deliver us from and we can be an encouragement to somebody else and then we want to sometimes leave out the end of that scripture. And the end of that scripture is that “we love not our lives unto death.” We aren’t supposed to be so in love with our life. We are supposed to be so committed to God that our lives are laid on the altar and we lay our lives on the altar as a sacrifice, whatever He wants to do through us. And if we start pulling, and we start looking for things that are captivating us, that are keeping us from God, we must remember “we love not our lives unto death.”
Father, I pray that you touch each person, that you put in them a desire to lay their lives on the line, that they will be an overcomer and they will share their testimonies with others, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
