Daily devotional: Reward for perseverance

Scripture
All who are victorious will become pillars in the Temple of my God, and they will never have to leave it. And I will write on them the name of my God, and they will be citizens in the city of my God--the new Jerusalem that comes down from heaven from my God. And I will also write on them my new name.
Revelation 3:12 NLT

Observation
There is a great reward waiting for those of us who persevere in our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ! He will personally identify us as His own. I love that He says we will always be welcome in His heavenly temple.

Application
Continue on in my faith, not just when it is convenient or easy but also when it is a challenge.

Prayer
Lord God, I love you. I give myself to You fully. Thank you for identifying me as Your own! Thank you for preparing a special place for me. I can't wait and am humbled by the privilege of life that You have freely offered us at high cost to You. Help me to be strong in You as I run the race.
