WEEK 2: DAY 7

Pray that your local congregation will grow its witness to Jesus Christ

Worship the Lord our GodWe are living in the end days, that is, the inbetween‐times, after Jesus’ first coming and before His second coming. Our reason for being is to love the Lord with all our heart, mind, soul and strength and our neighbors as ourselves. We are who we are created to be, our best selves, when we cooperate with the Holy Spirit in the Father’s mission to draw His children not yet home to saving faith in Jesus, and thus into the Kingdom. Until Jesus comes again, that is our mission.

Revelation 4: 1‐11

After this I looked, and there before me was a door standing open in
heaven. And the voice I had first heard speaking to me like a trumpet said,
“Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” At
once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with
someone sitting on it. And the one who sat there had the appearance of
jasper and carnelian. A rainbow, resembling an emerald, encircled the
throne. Surrounding the throne were twenty‐four other thrones, and
seated on them were twenty‐four elders. They were dressed in white and
had crowns of gold on their heads. From the throne came flashes of
lightning, rumblings and peals of thunder. Before the throne, seven lamps
were blazing. These are the seven spirits of God. Also before the throne
there was what looked like a sea of glass, clear as crystal.
In the center, around the throne, were four living creatures, and they
were covered with eyes, in front and in back. The first living creature was
like a lion, the second was like an ox, the third had a face
like a man, the fourth was like a flying eagle. Each of the
four living creatures had six wings and was covered with
eyes all around, even under his wings. Day and night they
never stop saying:

“Holy, Holy, Holy
is the Lord God almighty,
who was, and is, and is to come.”

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and
thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for
ever and ever, the twenty‐four elders fall down before him
who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever
and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

“You are worthy, our Lord and God,
to receive glory and honor and power,
for you created all things,
and by your will they were created
and have their being.”
