Worship the one who saved you.
“And between the throne and the four living creatures and among the elders I saw a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, with seven horns and with seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth. An he went and took the scroll from the right hand of him who was seated on the throne. And when he had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. And they sang a new song, saying ‘Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.’”
Revelation 5:6-10 (ESV)
This is one of those amazing passages in the book of Revelation that shows the wonderful imagery used in this letter. Every aspect of the description of the Lamb shows the power and majesty of Christ. He is shown to have seven horns which rep-resent the perfect and total power of the Lamb. He is shown to have seven eyes which represent the perfect and total knowledge and sight of the Lamb. And lastly we see that those seven eyes are also the seven spirits of God sent out into the earth representing Christ’s perfect and total presence throughout creation. All said, this description shows that this is Christ, the savior of the world. Within this description of Christ, we see that he is standing as though he had been slain. Obviously, corpses can’t stand. This is a way of showing that this is the savior who humbled himself to the death of the cross and rose again on the third day. It is because of this sacrifice that he is worthy to open the scroll given by the Father and worthy of the worship of all heaven.
This is the God we worship. One who is full of power and yet died for you and me. We, like those in heaven, should seek to worship Christ with everything we are and every fiber of our being because of what he did for us. He ransomed his people from every tribe, tongue, and nation. He is the one who is worthy of all things. Let us worship our God and rely on his power for everything in life. If you are going through hard times, rely on him and not your own power and he will help you. He is the one who is all powerful, all seeing, and present no matter where you go. He is the one who ransomed you out of your sin and he is the one who desires a relationship with you.
This week, worship the one who saved you. Let him know how much you love him. If you have never come to faith in Christ, I urge you to talk to a Christian you know so that you too may know the power and might of Christ.
