Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - August 22

Praising Jesus Is Contagious!

“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever!

Revelation 5:13, niv

The apostle John gives us a thrilling glimpse into a universal celebration that one day we are going to participate in. He describes four living creatures who surround the throne on which Jesus reigns supreme over the universe. These living creatures never stop saying: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come” (Rev. 4:8, niv). Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne, the twenty-four elders fall down before him and worship him. And as the elders praise the person of Jesus Christ, millions of angels join in the chorus, singing in a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!” Then John describes the entire universe beginning to roar in the continuous, contagious acclamation of Christ as every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea sings: ‘To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb be praise and honor and glory and power for ever and ever!’”

So . . . who is praising Christ because you are?

Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray
