“and from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood” – Revelation 1:5
OBSERVATION: We praise Jesus Christ for He is faithful. He is the firstborn of the dead. He is Lord, and He has released us from our sin by His blood, because of His love. The things that He has done for us is the direct reflection of who He is. He is faithful therefore we receive His faithfulness when we receive Him. He is the firstborn, therefore we have access to a new birth. He is the ruler of Kings therefore I can trust His Lordship. He is love, He was the sacrifice. Who He is and what He has done deserves my praise.
PRAYER: Jesus, we praise you for all you have done, but mostly for who you are. We honor your faithfulness with our own. We acknowledge you as the firstborn, and we are privileged to be apart of your family. We gladly submit to your lordship. If you can rule the kings of the earth, I give you permission to rule over me. We praise you for your love, and the sacrifice of your blood. Only you are worthy, and to you we give our praise. May you alone become famous in our hearts. In Your Name we pray. Amen.
