Yesterday we talked about Jesus knocking at the door in Revelation 3:20. I am always surprised and blessed by the reading of the next few verses.
To him who overcomes, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I overcame and sat down with my Father on his throne. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” (Revelation 3:21-22)
Have you ever sat on a throne? I have seen a couple in museums but they were always roped off and strictly enforced to not sit on them. So I have never sat on one. But this verse says that one day Jesus will ask me to sit beside him on His throne. This could be a figurative way of saying we will reign with Jesus in heaven, but I love the literal picture in my mind of sitting beside Jesus. God’s love and grace are always bigger than we expect or in any way deserve.
