“Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” This is the question that hangs in the air around the throne of Heaven as John continues to describe the scene around the throne in Heaven in Revelation 5.

Worthiness is something we considered last Sunday. At the end of chapter 4, the 24 elders fell down before the throne and said, “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created.”

The subject of worthiness is still our focus in Revelation 5—but not in relation to the act of creation. We considered it in the form of the question asked above—a question concerning the redemption of creation. So what’s the answer? Listen to our study of Revelation 5 to find out!

Join us this Sunday at 10am in the Regency Ballroom. We’ll be taking a break from our Revelation study to look at the birth of Jesus from each of the 4 Gospels leading up to our Christmas Eve service.

Hey Children's Ministry Volunteers (and anyone interested in serving in Children's Ministry)! We'll be getting together in December for a time of fellowship, refreshment, and review of the vision for Children's Ministry in our fellowship. Volunteers for each class will be meeting on different Sundays so we can discuss topics specific to each class:
  • December 8th (THIS SUNDAY): Pre-K Servants
  • December 15th: K-5th Servants
We'll gather in the Children's Ministry rooms in the lower level following service and meet for an hour. If you are serving or want to serve, please come for a time of refreshment & review of our vision for Children’s Ministry. Please contact Pastor Nate if you have any questions or for more information.

Christmas Eve Service

Tuesday, December 24th at 4pm
Join us for a special Christmas Eve Family Worship Service as we gather to celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus—Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace! 


ATTENTION PARENTS!

Children are invited to participate in a special song during our Christmas Eve Service. We'll be reviewing the song and actions during Sunday school leading up to Christmas Eve, but you can click here to review the song and actions with your child at home for extra practice. We're looking forward to sharing this exciting song with everyone in the fellowship!

Be Encouraged

“Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” For a moment, this question was left unanswered before the throne in Heaven. And in that moment, the lives of billions upon billions of all of the human who ever lived upon the earth were searched—and no one was found to be worthy. 

Not even God the Father was worthy. The One seated on the throne with the scroll in His hand wasn’t worthy to open the scroll or to loose the seven seals or to look inside. Why? Because God gave authority over earth to Adam, who forfeited his authority over the earth. So the only one who could complete the redemption of creation was another human—a second Adam. 

“Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?”

JESUS! “Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.” (Revelation 5:4) Jesus is worthy! He ALONE is worthy because He bought us back with His own blood after we sold ourselves into slavery to sin. And yet Jesus is not only worthy of all of this—He is also worthy of our worship. 

“Blessing and honor and glory and power be to Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, forever and ever!” (Revelation 5:14)
