Revelation 5.9-14 – May 29, 2020

Revelation 5:9–14

And they sang a new song, saying: 

“You are worthy to take the scroll
and to open its seals,
because you were slain,
and with your blood you purchased for God
persons from every tribe and language and people and nation.
10 You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God,
and they will reign on the earth.” 

11 Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. 12 In a loud voice they were saying: 

“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!” 

13 Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying: 

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power,
for ever and ever!” 

14 The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.

(Revelation 5:9–14, NIV)

The ultimate time of praise and worship!

Thought Questions:

If you had an opportunity today to sit before God and tell him what you thought of him, what would you say?

What do the words of those speaking here tell us about God? Is this consistent with how you have thought about him?

How can you live today in such a way so as to give praise, honor, glory, and power to the Lamb?
