Then as I looked, I saw a door standing open in heaven, and the same voice I had heard before spoke to me like a trumpet blast. The voice said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must happen after this.” And instantly I was in the Spirit, and I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it. In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal. In the center and around the throne were four living beings, each covered with eyes, front and back. The first of these living beings was like a lion; the second was like an ox; the third had a human face; and the fourth was like an eagle in flight. Each of these living beings had six wings, and their wings were covered all over with eyes, inside and out. Day after day and night after night they keep on saying,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come.”
Whenever the living beings give glory and honor and thanks to the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever), the 24 elders fall down and worship the one sitting on the throne (the one who lives forever and ever). And they lay their crowns before the throne and say, “You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased.”—Revelation 4 1-2; 6-11, NLT
Prayer + Reflection
- Worship by praying together the words from Rev. 4: “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God, the Almighty—the one who always was, who is, and who is still to come. … You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For You created all things, and they exist because You created what You pleased” (vv. 8, 11).
- Think of some attributes of God you can worship, and write lines of praise to Him.
- Spend time in silent worship, as well, letting God put His word in your heart.
Read Psalm 145 together and discuss how it is an acrostic poem in Hebrew, as each verse begins with a different letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Write your own acrostic poem using a word like “praise” or “worship.” Make each letter a characteristic of God. Then read them together.
