“Bring in the Goodies!”
Revelation 3: 8: “I know your deeds. Behold, I have put before you an open door which no one can shut, because you have a little power, and have kept My word, and have not denied My Name.” Why did God give the Philadelphians an open door? Because they were doing things for Him, they had a little power, and they were faithful. The open door was for ministry opportunities, not for blessings to pass through, just because … just because. Like the parable of the talents, when we prove ourselves faithful over little, the Lord will put us over much – but this refers to our responsibilities, not our blessings.
