Do You Remember?

Sermon scripture: Revelation 1:4-6





God Is in Control (vv. 4–5):

God Loves Us (v. 5b):
But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him.
1 John 3:1

Our Sins Have Been Forgiven (v. 5b):
In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness.
Hebrews 9:22

We Are Called to Serve Him (v. 6a):

We Must Live for His Glory (v. 6b):
So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—  not by works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8–9

Sermon Scripture
Because Of Who He Is

Judah, your brothers will praise you; your hand will be on the neck of your enemies; your father’s sons will bow down to you. You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse him? The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his. Genesis 49:8-10

A shoot will come up from the stump of Jesse; from his roots a Branch will bear fruit.
Isaiah 11:1

We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
Isaiah 53:6-7

Because Of Where He Is

Worship of Christ by 4 Living Creatures and the Elders

The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
Romans 8:16-17

The Majestic Worship of Christ by the Angels

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Worship of All:

there is the majestic worship by the whole universe. After each group of created beings has sung their chorus of praise, then all of creation—every being and creature who has ever lived in both heaven and earth—shall break forth in one chorus of praise to both God and Christ.

For you were bought with a price; therefore glorify God in your body.
