{ Day 30 }

I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw ... someone "like a son of man," dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest. His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. In his right hand he held seven stars, and out of his mouth came a sharp double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance. When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. —Revelation 1:12-17

When the Lord, whom John had served faithfully, appeared to him in His awesome majesty and glory, John "fell at His feet as a dead man" (Rev. 1:17, NAS). Imagine a man of John's spiritual stature and experience being totally overcome by this brief glimpse of the beloved Friend he had served faithfully for more than sixty years. When we are exposed to even a portion of His consuming glory, as John was, we will be motivated to live free from sin, die to selfishness, and give ourselves passionately to the Lord.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Take the world, Jesus, and give me only more and more of Yourself and Your glory. Consume me with Your love, and stabilize me in Your will.

When we gaze upon His loveliness, we will gladly
die to those things that are not like Him.
