Revelation Overcomer #2

To Be Repentant and Humble

Five of the seven churches in Revelation 2 and 3 were asked by the angels of God to repent of their wayward ways. Living in repentance opens the door to being sensitive to the Holy Spirit’s communications, encouragements and admonitions.
God responds in a most special and powerful way to humility. Humility is a major virtue in Christianity. It is an attitude of mind that realizes that one is without any reason for distinction in God’s sight.


1 Peter 5:5-6 (NIV)
“All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.

James 4:6-7 (NIV)
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”Submit yourselves, then, to God.

Revelation 2:5 (NIV)
Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.

Revelation 2:16 (NIV)
Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 2:22 (NIV)
So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways.

Revelation 3:3 (NIV)
Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard; obey it, and repent. But if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what time I will come to you.

Revelation 3:19 (NIV)
Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.


Father in Heaven, I ask for Your Holy Spirit to teach me to live a lifestyle of repentance and humility. Even, Jesus, as You came to serve, not being served, empower me to live a life of service to You and others. Where I have missed Your call and instructions, help me to repent and start over again. You are truly a God of new beginnings! May You grant me to have a humble servant’s heart for You, Your people and the kingdom of God today and every day in Jesus’ Almighty Name. Amen
