“And they sang a new song, saying, “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” (Revelation 5:9).
From every tribe, tongue, people and nation come those who walk with the Lord. Who is my sister? Who is my brother? It is another who follows the Lord. O how this world segregates us in all of the wrong ways. We are called to come to the Lord in love and love our neighbor. The Lord is worthy because He has done all that is necessary for life now and life eternal. Come to Him and become what He will make you.
Lord, all things are in Your hands. You have died that we may live. My brothers and sisters may look different, speak another language, and be from another time, but they are family. You have called me to come before You. One day I will stand before You, the Judge of all and I pray that by Your grace and through the faith You have given me, my hope will be fulfilled by the call You have given me.
Lord, to the extent that I am able, help me to pour myself into the life of faith You have given me. Guide me in Your goodness to know that in You alone is all hope. You are the One who is worthy to judge all people, and me, according to Your standard. Help me to learn how to continue overcoming this world and all the nonsense it contains. Lamb of God who is worthy, save me from my iniquities. Amen.
