Let's Praise God
Dr. Fred Lowery
Rev. 1:4-8; Rom 3:23; Rom 6:23
I want you to turn to the book of the Revelation. Even Baptists can find that book. Baptists love the Bible. We just don't know what it says. Well, we're gonna look at Revelation 1. You know the risen Christ called the John into the presence of the living God. John, now an old man but he wanted him to know and through him we could know that there is a person and there is a power that is worthy of our trust and our praise--who deserves our constant praise and that's the title of my message --"Let's Praise God" because we have every reason to praise God.

It is the very presentation of Jesus. This is the Christ-- the Saviour of the world. And I think in this --in verses 1-8, which by the way is a summary and a synopsis of the book of the Revelation, it -- it gives us this--this wonderful unveiling -- the majesty and the glory of Christ and things to praise God for.
