Ultimate Worship

Grace Challenge Day 28

“Amen, blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and might, be to our God forever and ever. Amen.

This line of praise is from the The Revelation to John of Jesus Christ.  All of these characteristics belong to Christ and to our God:

Blessing:  We bless God in worship:   In order to receive God’s blessings, we must bless/kneel to Him in praise and Thanksgiving.

Glory:  We exist to glorify God.

Wisdom:  “Wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without hypocrisy”  – in other words a perfect description of Christ. James 3:17

Thanksgiving:  In everything give thanks.  1 Thessalonians 5:18.

Honor:  A son honors his father (Malachi 1:6). Worship extends to all of life because how we live our lives either brings honor or dishonor to God.

Power: By submitting to God we ascribe power to Him, we acknowledge that He is in control and we are not.  Submitting to God’s power is expressed via obedience.

Might: Humility is the posture of worship.  Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time (1 Peter 5:6)

Amen…Amen.  The first and the last.  This phrase is bracketed by a double amen, something we usually use as an ending.  The word “amen” means “truly” (“verily” in the old King James).  To bracket the phrase with “amen” confirms with emphasis the certainty of God’s redemption of His people, resulting in this ultimate expression of worship.  Worship is the highest human expression.
