The message of the song is so powerful, and it’s beautiful coming from young people of various tribes and ethnicities. Listen to these words, and celebrate what they mean and how God is always faithful.
“And they sang a new song: ‘You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals, because you were slain, and with your blood you purchased men for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our God, and they will reign on the earth’” (Revelation 5:9–10).
This passage praises Christ as the ultimate hero because of his suffering and death He endured for us, out of love; and for what He accomplished through it. Christ’s suffering and death reversed the Curse so that one day God’s original design for our world would one day be a reality. Jesus willingly entered this world of evil and suffering and didn’t spare Himself, but took on the worst of it for my sake and yours, He has earned our trust for what we can’t understand. I and many others have found Him to be trustworthy even when times are dark and difficult.
