Revelation 2:12 NIVUK
I know where you live – where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city – where Satan lives.

As Christians we are called to be like God, and one of God’s characteristics is his faithfulness. In Pergamum, his people were faithful, standing firm even when they were rocked by the murder of Antipas, one of their number. Fortunately we are unlikely to face such extreme situations, but would it look like if we were to value faithfulness in all our relationships: to be faithful to Jesus, to be faithful to our partners and families, to be faithful to our friends and colleagues and those in our communities.

Lord, help us to value our relationships and to be faithful in them as you are in yours.
