Tuesday 12/28/10  Revelation 5-9 - SING A NEW SONG!

S - Rev 5:8-10 NLT, And when he took the scroll, the four living beings and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb... And they sang a new song with these words, "You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it.  For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a kingdom of priests for our God.

O - John had wept bitterly because no one was worthy to open the scroll.  But then Jesus, in the form of a Lamb, stepped forward.  They sang a new song to Him.  According to my NIV Study Bible, "In the OT a new song celebrated a new act of divine deliverance or blessing."

A - Gosh, wouldn't it be awesome if we sang a new song to Jesus after every new act of divine deliverance or evidence of His blessing in our lives?  We could gather our songs together and create a whole new repertoire of worship choruses!!  That might help us remember all of the Lord's favor, blessings, interventions, etc.  What new song are you singing today??

P - Jesus, you have done so much for us!  May we never forget each blessing, each divine happenstance in our lives.  Thank you for loving us so much that You were willing to be slaughtered as a Lamb in order to purchase people from every tribe, language, people, nation - including me/us!
