"Amen" is "So be it" or "So it is." The "Amen" here is our Lord-the Faithful Witness. He has said "Amen" to every truth of the Scripture, but the church has failed to follow in His footsteps. She has the truth for she has Himself, and He is the Way, the Truth and the Life, as we have seen; but she has not said"Amen." She says, "I am rich and increased with goods and have need of nothing." She has not been a faithful and true witness. She has been neither cold nor hot, but a lukewarm product. God pity her! To what extent are we responsible? God forgive us. God help us.
Lord, open our eyes to see, our ears to hear and our hearts to believe. Baptize us with the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
