“Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.”
—Revelation 4:11 KJV

From the many stories in the Bible, and especially following Jesus’ habits with his disciples, we learn how to worship our Creator. A victorious story during Jehoshaphat’s reign parallels elements of worship John saw in Revelation.
After praying for—and receiving God’s promise of—deliverance, Jehoshaphat bows to the ground, and all Israel fell before the Lord in worship. The believers stand still as God fights their enemy. They may not have been physically fighting, but they lifted their voices to praise the beauty of holiness and God’s merciful deliverance.
In Revelation, John describes created beings continually giving Christ glory, honor and thankful praise as Creator and Redeemer. Who is worthy? No man. No beast. No idol or thing made with human hands. By His sacrifice, Christ opened the door to Heaven and is worthy of our worship and praise. Won’t you join the chorus?
