The Perfect Offering

As I continue to journey through Revelation, and through life, I am always asking God questions. As I read through chapter 14 this afternoon, I paused on verse 1-5. "This sums it all up right here, doesn't it, God?" I mused in a silent prayer.

"I saw--it took my breath away-- the Lamb standing on Mount Zion, One Hundred and Forty Thousand standing there with him, his Name and the Name of his Father inscribed on their foreheads. And I heard a voice out of heaven, the sound like a cataract, like a crash of thunder. And then I heard music, harp music and the harpists singing a new song before the Throne and the Four Animals and the Elders. Only the Hundred and Forty four Thousand could learn to sing the song. They were bought from earth, lived without compromise, virgin-fresh before God. Wherever the Lamb went, they followed. They were bought from humankind, first fruits of the harvest for God and the Lamb. Not a false word in their mouths. A perfect offering."

Purchased by God from this earth. Bold enough to live without compromise for the God I love. Pure before my Savior. Wherever He goes, I will follow. He alone is my God. Truth seeker, Truth speaker, Truth walker. This is my offering before my God.
Say That Again, Jesus, You will stand on Mount Zion and it will take my breath away!
