Religion vs. Faith

Updated: May 5

Revelation 5:11-14

11 Then I looked, and I heard the sound of many angels surrounding the throne, the living creatures, and the elders. They numbered in the millions—thousands upon thousands.12 They said in a loud voice,

“Worthy is the slaughtered Lamb to receive power, wealth, wisdom, and might, and honor, glory, and blessing.”

13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea—I heard everything everywhere say,

“Blessing, honor, glory, and power belong to the one seated on the throne and to the Lamb forever and always.”

14 Then the four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshipped.


Reflection

In response to an unknown event which caused a sense of impending doom, this Psalm was written as a reminder to sing praises. The Psalmist shows how God acts throughout the passage of time. The acts of the past shows God’s faithfulness in the future.


Questions

- When you look at your past, where do you see God at work? How is that a foretaste of God’s actions on your behalf in the future?

- Are we walking into the light of the future or remaining stuck in the darkness of the tunnel which has become more familiar?


Prayer: God, help us to remember you have always been with us in the past. There is no certain way to secure the end of the story we desire, so help us to be thankful for the day and the blessings we have now. Amen.
