Today’s reading is Revelation 5:1-6:17.
“And one of the elders said to me, ‘Weep no more; behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has conquered, so that he can open the scroll and its seven seals” (Revelation 5:5).
There seem to be numerous reasons to weep. My sins and faults mount up when I begin to count them. What is left to do but mourn in the face of so much failure. Yet, God did not leave me in this state. Rather, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, Jesus, God in the flesh, lived the perfect life. He did not fail. He did not sin. He made no mistakes. He is worthy to open the scroll of God. By His worthiness I am saved from myself and from my sins.
There is no need to weep because when God looks for worthiness in me, He will look for Jesus and not for me. Thank you, Lord, for Your sacrifice.
Keep the faith and keep reading,
