Where am I and what am I doing?

I started reading the book of Revelation today and I was struck by this statement of John, the author:

“I, John, your brother and partner in the tribulation and the kingdom and the patient endurance that are in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus” (Revelation 1:9).

I feel immense challenge in that statement. John was stranded on an island because he spoke the word of God and bore witness to Jesus Christ.

I can’t help but ask, “Where am I and what am I doing on account of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus?”

Has there been a significant change in the course of my life because of Jesus Christ? Am I facing opposition from the world because of my stance as a follower of Jesus Christ? Am I living everyday on account of His Word and the testimony of His death and resurrection?

Or am I simply maintaining a form of religion without a life of stepping out for Christ?

How about you?
