Out of fear of the Lord, he chose 3 days of pestilence. However, King David took this plague as an opportunity to repent, cleanse the people, and worship the Lord.

A letter of encouragement to the church of Smyrna, or the "persecuted church". The word "smyrna" literally means "myrrh". Like myrrh and Jesus, let's give off a fragrant aroma when we are crushed, because God cares more about our eternal state than our present comfort.

Nehemiah demonstrates the importance and power of prayer. We learn the purpose of prayer is to align our will with God's will, and the model for prayer is Adoration, Confession, Thanksgiving, & Supplication. Let's pray and wait for the Lord's timing, so when He "pulls the trigger", we are ready for action!

John continues in his revelation of Jesus with the only description of Jesus given in the New Testament. In this passage we are reminded of God's view of His Church and that we ought to have a balanced view of Jesus...as Savior, Judge, Authority, Majesty, & Friend!
