"And I saw in the right hand of Him who sat on the throne a book written inside and on the back, sealed up with seven seals. And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book and to break its seals?" And no one in heaven, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look into it. And I began to weep greatly, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look into it; and one of the elders said to me, "Stop weeping; behold, the LION that is from the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome so as to open the book and its seven seals." Rev. 5:3-5

Jesus, You are the LION! You are the Only One worthy to open the book! You are worthy because You gave Your life for mine! You have overcome death and You live forevermore at the right hand of God! You knew that You would face death for the sins of the world, and yet You walked COURAGEOUSLY toward the cross. You had the POWER to be released from the cross - and yet You WILLINGLY gave Yourself for me! Your love for me and the world compelled You to walk courageously to the cross. Oh Jesus, I bow before You in awe of who You are!
