This verse shows Jesus' evaluation of the Church in the Asia Minor City of Phildelphia. He could see clearly the assets they possessed and their faithfulness to Him. Our God sees us very clearly and can come alongside us to encourage our hearts with His awareness of our strengths and abilities. He also knows how we have sought to honor Him in what we say and do and that we stand up for Him when people tend to mock His Word and even His existence. Our God never misses what we do for Him.
My desire is to seek to help other believers see the stengths and talents God has given them. I know far too many Christians who think of themselves as not being qualified to serve our Savior. It appears no one has come alongside them and pointed out the obvious abilities they have and how they can put those to good use for Christ. May the Lord help all of us to realize that we have been gifted by the Holy Spirit and that we would be willing to let Him help show us how we can best serve our Savior.
