“Who will fear you, Lord, and bring glory to your name? For you alone are holy. All nations will come and worship before you, for your righteous acts have been revealed.” Revelation 15:4
In the vision John sees people worshipping God. These are the people who did not give into Satan and start worshipping Him. They are now asking the question as to who will fear Jesus and bring Him glory. They know that He is the only one who is holy and done many righteous acts.
Although this appears to be set in the future, this same question can be asked today. Looking around the world today, one has to wonder if there are any people who fear the Lord Jesus. Many in this world have no fear of Him. They do not believe He is real or alive today. They do not realize that Jesus is still in control and has absolute power.
Regretfully this also happens in the church at times. There are people who claim to be Christian and yet do not live their lives for Jesus. They live for self pleasure. There is no fear of Him.
This fear is not one of being scared of Jesus, but one of respect and reverence for Him. When you realize that Jesus is the only one who is holy and that all of His actions are perfect before God, you will respect Him. You will want to bring Him glory.
Respecting Jesus is listening to Him and obeying Him. It is allowing Him to have complete control of your life. In this way you will also worship Him with your life. As you do that the world will see Jesus.
There will come a day when every person will bow down before Jesus, either to honor Him, or in realization that He is the King.
What are you doing today?
Do you allow Jesus to be the ruler of your life? Do you fear Him?
Or is Jesus just someone you talk about on Sunday and forget the rest of the week?
I pray today that you will know who Jesus is; that you will allow Jesus to rule your life; that you will fear Jesus and bring Him glory; that you will worship Jesus with all of your life; and that you will be His witness in this world.
