Come Forth!

Dear Saints, what a glory to stand in the presence of our God. Our sins have weighed us down. By nature, we are objects of wrath. We were dead in our sins and wholly unable to save ourselves. But God, who is in rich in mercy, sent His Son, Jesus, to die for sinners like you and me. But though He died, death could not hold Him. He came bursting from the death tomb to seize life for all His saints.

         This is the joy that was set before Him for which He gladly endured the humiliation of the cross. And so we rise and come forth, confident in the victory of Jesus over sin and death and with our voices join the heavenly song, saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”  And every creature which is in heaven, and on the earth, and under the earth, and such as are in the sea, and all that are in them, heard I saying, “Blessing, and honour, and glory, and power, be unto Him that sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb for ever and ever.”  And the four beasts said, “Amen.” And the four and twenty elders fell down and worshipped Him that liveth for ever and ever. And the saints of Providence Church gave Him the glory for the glory is all His and they worshipped Him forever and ever.
