A Part of His Team

The scene in Revelation 14:1-5 turns to earth and Mount Zion or Jerusalem. The participants are the servants of God (144,000) with the name of the Lamb (Christ) and the Father’s name written on their foreheads. They are with Christ ready to worship and John hears a sound from heaven. The sound is that of harpists. They are playing a new song in front of the throne, the four living creatures, and the elders. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth (v. 3).

In verse 4 we read that the 144,000 servants of God were people who did not defile themselves. They didn’t follow the antichrist and their hearts were right with God; freely pardoned in Christ. This day, let’s be devoted to His Word and worship the Lord in this way. Being obedient and devoted to living the way God wants us to; treating others right and having integrity.

We pray this day with You God that our ambition is to be a part of Your team; fully sanctified, justified, and without fault before You. Help us to be good examples for others to follow and be inspired to work as a team of servants.

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
