What a Privilege!
Five songs are sung by the angels, elders and the four creatures in Revelations 4 & 5. All of the songs speak of the power, splendour and majesty of God and Jesus – they are all objective (of the person or being of God). This is great and should be the centre of our own worship individually or as a gathered church.
It’s easy to notice that none of the songs is ever subjective – of emotions, experience, or depicting a relationship with God. Why? Maybe because the angels and creatures of God have never really tasted what we have here – a personal father-child relationship. They don’t know the experience of redemption or being saved from darkness into light.
Its only people like us, the redeemed of God, children of God, that can sing songs like ‘How he loves me’, ‘You will never leave me’, ‘Your steadfast love never ceases’, or simply – ‘I love you, Lord’. What a privilege!
Go on – pour your heart out to God – begin like the angels, but don’t forget to end it like a child of God – dearly loved and precious.
