Scripture of the Day - July 16, 2012

Revelation 3:7 And to the angel of the church in Philadelphia write ...
8  I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.

Oh what a strong message to NOT change the Word of God! The church in Philadelphia had some strength still and God set before them an open door because they kept His Word and didn't deny His name. Many people today have changed the Word of God to suit their way of thinking. They aren't comfortable using His precious name so they use His titles. They don't like the idea of repenting and going down in the waters of baptism so they sprinkle their babies and say that is good enough. They have lost their strength. 
The church ought to be the pillar and ground of truth, after all, it is the body of Christ and He is the head! We must keep His Word for not only is Jesus the foundation of the church, He is the chief cornerstone! If we chisel at the foundation and trim down the cornerstone we are left with no strength and we will fall. If you want to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might then don't deny His name and don't change His Word.
