A while ago I was listening to one of my Dad’s sermons (listen to it here) on Jesus’ voice being like the roar of many waters and he said this:
In Revelation ch 14, you hear the roar of many waters…. which turns out to be a multitude of the redeemed… Those who, though powerless themselves, have been rescued and established by the death of the Lord Jesus Christ. It’s almost as though the voices of the redeemed get caught up in the mighty history-shaping voice of the Lord Jesus Christ when they sing His praise as the Slain Lamb. So, if you feel like you haven’t got a voice and you’d like to be part of the roar of many waters voice then the best thing you can do is sing a new song of praise to the crucified Lord Jesus Christ. And as you sing a new song of praise to the Lamb who is worthy then your voice will become part of a multitude voice joined with Jesus’ which sounds like the roar of many waters. And since Jesus’ is a history shaping voice, maybe your little water droplet in His many-waters, glorious voice will be that contribution to taking the universe to where it’s meant to be.
That sentence, in that paragraph, struck me as amazing. And then I remembered that a couple of years ago I named my blog One Little Drop. At the time I just thought that it was a nice thing to call my little drop in the ocean of the internet (I know, I know, really not profound), but now I realise that this tiny slice of web-space, this particular song of this particular redeemed, Jesus-serving person, is part of my contribution, part of my little water droplet in Jesus’ many-waters, glorious voice.
Because: ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and might and honour and glory and blessing!’
Amen and amen.
