Another Look. Another Level.
Revelation 5:1-14 Then I saw in the right hand of him who was seated on the throne a scroll written within and on the back, sealed with seven seals...
think about it.
Who is found worthy to open the scroll (5:5)? How do the four living creatures and 24 elders respond to this situation (5:9-10)? Create a song (or use one you know) that expresses this same feeling toward Christ.
There's a lot going on in Revelation 5. We're introduced to the scroll with seven seals, Jesus appears as the Lamb who had been slaughtered, we see the four living creatures and the 24 elders again and now added in are angels en mass.
Now I know I just talked about worship yesterday, but the worship taking place here in this passage practically jumped off the page at me. Did you notice how large a portion of this chapter is dedicated to worship? It was so intense and "every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea" was participating. A pretty good indicator for us of the importance of worship.
So any new thoughts on worship after reading Revelation 5 today? Do you see any changes coming for how you might worship? Tami W.
