Revelation 13 - Key

v10

He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.

I think about how we'll need to overcome this if we're there in that day. It will a terrible tribulation of people being led into captivity and killed, with strong temptation and deceit, even with powerful force and miracles.

The last part of this verse said, Here is the patience and the faith of the saints. If we're going to be able to overcome in the end, we must be living with such patience and faith today. Let's be strong against our little troubles and temptations now, so we'll be ready.

Application

Romans 12:11
Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord;

I'll pursue more ambitious goals in my work. That way I can show patience and faith in the face of relatively minor difficulty.
