Mortal Worship

In Revelation 5 the angelic hosts, the living creatures and the elders cry, “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain, and purchased for God with Your blood men from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. “You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and they will reign upon the earth.” And “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”

Yet only we, mere mortal men, can say “Worthy are You to take the book and to break its seals; for You were slain for me, and purchased me for God “You have made me to be a kingdom and priests to our God; and I will reign upon the earth.” And “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain for me to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing.”

Personal testimony of Gods redemption is reserved for us, the vilest of transgressors for whom He shed his blood. We were shown mercy, not on account of our own deeds, but so that we may worship Him with personal testimony of His grace.
