Scripture: Revelation (NIV) 4:2 At once I was in the Spirit, and there before me was a throne in heaven with someone sitting on it.
3 And the one who sat there had the appearance of jasper and ruby. A rainbow that shone like an emerald encircled the throne.
Observation: I noticed that heaven’s throne is not an empty throne! And I also noticed that the one sitting on the throne has more glory than the throne. The throne does not give its occupant glory, the occupant gives the throne glory! God is not glorious because He sits on the throne in heaven; the throne in heaven is glorious because God sits on it!
Application: In John 14:23 Jesus told us that if we love Him and keep His commandments the Father in Glory will loves us. Jesus and the Father will come to us and make their home in us! What a thought! The one who sits on the throne in heaven sits on the throne in my heart!!! The One who gives glory to the throne in heaven gives glory to the throne in my heart! He adds value to my life!
Prayer: Lord, there is always something new about you to discover in the Bible. You give my life meaning! You give my life value! Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
