Revelation 4:11 (HCSB) - "Our Lord and God, You are worthy to receive glory and honor and power,because You have created all things, and because of Your will they exist and were created." (Italics added)
Revelation 5:12 (HCSB) - "The Lamb who was slaughtered is worthy to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!" (Italics added)

Worthy! Jesus is WORTHY!! Why? Well, He is the omnipotent Creator, the One who gave us life (John 1:3). He created us with life, purpose, and design. He is worthy to receive our praise and worship because He created, designed, and gave us the ability to live. Our life is a reason for us to give Him all the worship.

Worthy also because He is the One who sacrificed His life for me - and you. He died for all people to pardon all sin. He did not deserve to die, He did not need to die for Himself, He was not sentenced to death by God, He choose to die in my place. He choose to die in your place.

As Creator and Redeemer, the Lord Jesus Christ is the only One worthy to receive all praise and worship. Today, muse over the fact that He alone is worthy. Do you treat Him as fully worthy? Do you even acknowledge Him as worthy? In words only, or in the way that you live your life?
