Podcast #369: “Who Could” by Meredith Andrews

Play episode

I’m Michelle Nezat and I hope to inspire you to discover and meditate on God’s Word through the songs you’re listening to on the radio.

A critical question is posed by an imposing angel in the throne room of God described in the book of Revelation, “Who is worthy to open the scroll?” Meredith Andrew’s song “Who Could” reminds us of this question, and the apostle John transports us through vivid imagery.

Visit the throne room of God with me this week on the podcast.

Here is an example of the Illustrated Bible Journal resource I discussed on this week’s podcast. You can see my notes and how I used them to follow the BITEs of marking up the text and completing word studies.

“Let the Scripture roll around in your mind a bit. Think about it. Think about it deeply. Don’t rush through this process. Let the Holy Spirit reveal things to you in His time, but give Him something to work with.”

Weekly Challenge

Read the book of Revelation for yourself. Consider the literary context as you read so that you don’t fall into the trap of misreading the text. Sit awestruck at the sight of the whole before inspecting the parts. Immerse yourself in the throne room scene and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal just how worthy the Lion and Lamb is of our praise.
