Revelation 1:5 ‘Jesus Christ the faithful witness’.
Jesus was faithful in sharing the gospel of salvation, knowing that this path led to death upon the cross. He faced the rejection and the insults of the crowds and he did not turn back or compromise his message. His sole purpose was to reveal the glory of his heavenly Father.
1 Peter 2:21 ‘To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example that you should follow in his steps.’
We are called to walk in his footsteps!
Jesus came to make the Father known to us. He was the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being. Not only was Jesus the fulfilment of Old Testament prophecy but he was also the Prophet, who came to reveal God to man.
Hebrews 1:3 ‘The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being’.
We will discover, in later chapters, that the end-time church will be called to witness passionately in the face of a deepening persecution.
Revelation 12:11 ‘They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony, they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.’
The Church will be faithful to the commission of sharing the gospel to a dying world.
