“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. In a loud voice they were saying: ‘Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise!'” (Revelation 5:11-12).
What an amazing scene this is! For us, It’s a glimpse into the eternal dimensyion. It’a a real vision of glory. The focus of our attention is not on the great multitude of angels. At the centre of our attention, there is Jesus Christ, “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). Jesus is so much greater than all of the angels. Our minds can’t take this all in. May we respond, with our hearts, worshipping the Lord: To Jesus, the Lamb of God be “power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honour and glory and praise.” Can we speak too highly of Jesus, our Saviour? No! We can only bow down and worship him, for he, alone, is worthy of our praise. What about our praise? Is it ever worthy of our Saviour? No! We are so easily distracted. Sometimes, we sing with our voices, but our hearts are not in it. Our worship is lacklustre. When we’re trying to worship, and it’s just not happening for us, is there a word from the Lord for us? Yes! There is. Jesus is “the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world,” While we’re here on earth, our worship will, always, be very far from what it could and should be. When we take our place in heaven, sin will be no more, and our song will, always, be the song of our eternal salvation. This is something wonderful, something to look forward to, something to inspire us, in our worship, while we’re still here on earth.
