History tells us that the Roman emperor Domitian commanded the apostle John be boiled to death in oil, but John only continued to preach from inside the pot. Frustrated and annoyed, Domitian banished John to the island of Patmos, where he wrote the book of Revelation. For John, it may have been tempting to assume that his ministry was over and it was time to give up, but he remained faithful, even in exile. If you're not dead, God's not done. Stay faithful, even when nothing in your life looks like you had hoped or planned.
