Is He Worthy?

Is He Worthy?

This past Sunday we sang a song called “Is He Worthy?” It is a wonderful song with deep meaning. So if you have not heard the song yet, I encourage you to find it on YouTube or wherever works best for you cause it is a song that will come up often.

In the song it asks many important questions. One I would like you to hear is this, “Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?” Is it good to be together and sing of the greatness of God? Is it good that we commiserate together about how difficult it is out in the world nowadays? Is it good to remind each other that Jesus will one day make all things right?

It is.

“Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?” (Rev 5:2) We never need to improve upon biblical language, but in order to draw out the meaning of these words, let’s pose the question differently: Who is able to purge wickedness from the earth with perfect justice and reign over the nations in righteousness forever? This is what is being asked through the breaking of the seals and the possession of the scroll. John weeps at the apparent hopelessness of ever finding someone who could be capable of this.

There is only one who can do these things. He is the Lion of Judah. He conquered the grave. He is David’s Root (a descendant). He is the Lamb who was slain in ransom for us, who were slaves to sin. He is Jesus.

When Jesus takes the scroll, voices of angels numbering thousands upon thousands, ten thousand times ten thousand, began to worship him. The four living creatures (the worship leaders of heaven) and all the angels sang, “Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!”

No one other than Jesus could save us. No one other than Jesus could bring peace to the earth. No one other than Jesus deserves our praise.
So the main question we all must answer is:

Is He worthy?
