In a loud voice they sang:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
(Revelation 5:12 (NIV))
Who do you praise?
Are you so wrapped up in the world that you sing the praises of those people who have wealth and power? Do you long for your own little piece of the pie – a pie that is baked solely on the sinful nature of this world since the Garden of Eden? No matter how you slice it, it only brings about more sin.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
(John 3:16 (NIV))
Isn’t it a wonderful blessing to have been given grace through God’s Son, Jesus? Through Him, we can escape the sinful nature and the life destroying consequences of sin. We can rejoice for we have been given a new lease on life that does not include eternal separation from God. We should direct all of our praise to Jesus for He is the Lamb of God.
Who is worthy of your praise?
