The good life: Revelation 21:1-8
I have always been puzzled by verses 7-8...

"The victor will inherit these things, and I will be his God, and he will be My son. 8 But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars-- their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death." (Rev.21:7-8)

That was until someone pointed out two things. First, each of the seven letters in Revelation 2-3 finishes with an exhortation to 'the victor', encouraging God's mob to persevere. And, second, in the Gospels, the word translated 'coward' here occurs, each time referring to someone of weak or wavering faith.

So, as this vision of the final glorious dwelling of God with his mob is presented, this question is asked: will you, as one of God's people, be an overcomer or a coward - will you persevere or will you cave and betray your king?

Father, please enable me to be an overcomer - by your grace alone. Amen.
