Joanne Lowe's Meditations : 'Praise the Lamb'


“And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation.”
Revelation 5: 8, 9 (King James Version)

Margaret Jenkins Harris composed a beautiful song “I Will Praise Him”. She and her husband, John, were song evangelists. My heart echoes these words “I will praise Him! I will praise Him! Praise the Lamb for sinners slain; Give Him glory, all ye people, For His blood can wash away each stain.” I believe that these words came from the depths of her heart. How I praise and thank God for the Lamb and His cleansing redeeming blood.

Unless the precious blood of the Lamb has been applied to our hearts for the forgiveness of our sins, we are lost in our sins and on our way to hell for all eternity. We read in the Bible “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins” (Matthew 26: 28). Has the redeeming blood of the Lamb been applied to your heart for the forgiveness of your sins?

If not, I urge you; I plead with you to humble yourself and admit that you are a sinner. Repent of your sins and ask God to forgive you. Open the door of your heart and invite Jesus to come in to be your personal Saviour. Where are you going to spend eternity, in Heaven with Jesus or in hell with satan? Only you can decide where you will spend eternity. Who do you choose, Jesus or satan?
