Revelation 4:1-11 After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice, which I had heard speaking to me like a trumpet, said, "Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this....
think about it.
According to the 24 elders, why is God worthy (4:11)? What to you makes God worthy "to receive glory and honor and power"?
Can you imagine day and night, never ceasing worship? Because that's exactly what we see in Revelation 4:1-11, and it's awesome. Look at the words that are continually on the lips of these six winged, eye-covered creatures, "Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come" (verse 8). And then, the words of the 24 elders. "Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created" (verse 11).
So what did you see/learn about worship from Revelation 4:1-11? How might we draw on these examples with regard to our own worship? Tami W.
