Today’s Reading | Revelation 4
You are Worthy
Why is the message the four creatures gave different from what the twenty four elders said to Christ? Could it be that the four creatures viewed God differently than the elders? The creatures who had not experienced redemption saw the holiness of God. All creation can recognize His purity, His majesty, and His holiness. But to those of us who have been redeemed, He is far more than just holy, He is worthy. Their song does not have the joy that the song of the redeemed has. The elders had once been dead in their sins and slaves to sin. They had no ability to please God or know a way to be cleansed from sin. The provision for salvation through faith in Jesus Christ was revealed to them and they accepted God’s gift. When they stood before the throne of God, they laid down their crowns and said, “You are worthy…” How one responds to God reveals his view of God and the value he places on the gift God has given him. How do you respond to God? Why not take some time today in private to express to God how you feel about all He has done for you. Whether or not you live what you say, will reveal your heart’s condition.
