And they sang a new song, saying,
“Worthy are you to take the scroll and to open its seals, for you were slain, and by your blood you ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation, and you have made them a kingdom and priests to our God, and they shall reign on the earth.”
Revelation 5:9-10 ESV
Music is very powerful. Just hearing an old song can bring up memories of the past. And many times, the lyrics just pop into our heads like we were singing the song yesterday.
But in Heaven, we won’t be singing songs from the past. We will sing a new song. And like older songs, these lyrics will just pop into our heads. They will actually stream from our hearts.
This new song will be about Jesus and how He ransomed people from sin and death and made them a kingdom of priests before God the Father.
Will you be singing? This singing takes place in Heaven. You need to be ransomed by Jesus to get there.
And although He already did the work, you have to accept Him as Lord and Savior and start living for Him. This means that you live according to His Word and not according to your fleshly desires.
This isn’t about giving God an hour of your Sunday morning. This isn’t about making yourself feel good by helping someone. This is about completely giving yourself to Jesus.
He paid a huge price to allow you into the family of God. How do you respond?
He is worthy! Do you think so?
Father, until the day I sing this new song in Heaven, prepare it in my heart so that I will be ready to join the Heavenly chorus.
