12/24/19: Revelation 15:1-8; Psalm 143:1-12; Proverbs 30:24-28

Revelation 15:  And I saw what looked like a sea of glass glowing with fire and, standing beside the sea, those who had been victorious over the beast and its image and over the number of its name. They held harps given them by God and sang the song of God’s servant Moses and of the Lamb:

“Great and marvelous are your deeds,
    Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
    King of the nations.
Who will not fear you, Lord,
    and bring glory to your name?
For you alone are holy.
All nations will come
    and worship before you,
for your righteous acts have been revealed.

Regarding this song, Coffman writes:   Significantly, this song, made up of a blended collection of Old Testament texts, deals not with the overcoming of the saints, but with the mighty works of God. There is not a single word about their own achievement.  Self is at last forgotten; selfishness is finally destroyed. In heaven, the song of Moses and the Lamb is exclusively an anthem of loving praise to the Almighty

My “take-away” for today’s Body — When we enter into our times of worship please help us to remember that worship is all about God, not about us!

    From the OT – I always appreciate simple statements telling me how God wants me to live. Zechariah 7:9-10: “Make fair decisions. Show faithful love and compassion to one another. Do not oppress the widow or the fatherless, the foreigner, or the poor. And do not plot evil in your hearts against one another.”
