Fuel Friday: Is He Worthy?

I’ve had a song stuck in my head for the last few weeks: Is He Worthy? by Andrew Peterson.

These beautiful, God-honoring words are derived from the pages of Scripture. Revelation 5, specifically.

And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a scroll written inside and on the back, sealed with seven seals. Then I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the scroll and to loose its seals?” And no one in heaven or on the earth or under the earth was able to open the scroll, or to look at it. So I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open [a]and read the scroll, or to look at it. But one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed to open the scroll and to loose its seven seals.”

Revelation 5:1-5

Is He Worthy?

 Do you feel the world is broken?  (We do) 
Do you feel the shadows deepen?  (We do)
But do you know that all the dark won't stop the light from getting through?  (We do)
Do you wish that you could see it all made new?  (We do)

Is all creation groaning? (It is)
Is a new creation coming?  (It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst? (It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?  (It is)

Is anyone worthy? 
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy of this? He is

Does the Father truly love us? (He does)
Does the Spirit move among us? (He does)
And does Jesus, our Messiah hold forever those He loves?  (He does)
Does our God intend to dwell again with us?  (He does)

Is anyone worthy? 
Is anyone whole?
Is anyone able to break the seal and open the scroll?
The Lion of Judah who conquered the grave
He is David's root and the Lamb who died to ransom the slave

From every people and tribe
Every nation and tongue
He has made us a kingdom and priests to God
To reign with the Son

Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Of all blessing and honor and glory
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
Is He worthy of this?
He is!
Is He worthy? Is He worthy?
He is!
He is!

I hope this song blesses you like it has me.

Happy Friday!
