JESUS the Lamb (Rev.15)

In this chapter we see the Christians who are already in heaven (from the rapture, and after that point - during the Tribulation) singing a "song of the LAMB" (the words to the song applying to Jesus)...

(Revelation 15:2-4)  And I saw something like a sea of glass mixed with fire, and those who had been victorious over the beast and his image and the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, holding harps of God. And they sang the song of Moses, the bond-servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying,
Great and marvelous are Your works,
O Lord God, the Almighty;
Righteous and true are Your ways,
King of the nations!
Who will not fear, O Lord, and glorify Your name?
For You alone are holy;
For all the nations will come and worship before You,
For Your righteous acts have been revealed.”

Jesus is God - Lord God, the Almighty!  KING!  RIGHTEOUS!  TRUE! and HOLY!  Deserving our reverence.  In a recent message at our church, we were told, "You cannot have reverence without a response!"  To show reverence, there has to be an action.  Depending where you are in your walk with God, one might need to confess and change one's heart.  To another, it might mean striving toward a fuller and deeper commitment to serving.  And it should most definitely mean that one has a desire to praise and worship and give thanksgiving!
