He is the pearl of great price. He is the most precious thing we could ever possess in this age, and every age to come. Nothing compares. To have Christ is to have everything our soul will ever long for. Do you remember the story of King Arthur and the sword in the stone? Many tried to extract the blade and failed, until one day, the boy Arthur came along and was able to free the sword from its place. Here we see a scroll in the hand of God the Father -- a scroll infinitely mightier than Excalibur or Mjolnir -- and there is no one worthy to take it from his hand and open it.
That is, until Jesus, the True Hero, comes on the scene. Because Jesus became flesh, lived a perfect life, and bled on the cross to absorb the wrath of God for the sin of mankind, he is qualified to take the scroll. He, and he alone, has the credentials necessary to sit as judge of the earth.
He atoned for the sins of the earth, making him fit to judge those on the earth who reject his salvation. There is not a being more fit to judge mankind on the last day than the Son of God. So when we say that Jesus is worthy, we are saying that he is infinitely qualified.
He has the credentials to be the sovereign Lord of all the universe. He is the rightful King. He alone is the one who is able to rule. To him alone will we bow our knee in submission. He alone is worthy to wield the scepter Revelation Scripture: Isaiah All of us have done some deed or had an experience that deserved some honest praise from friends, family or the public. Although most of us get at least a little embarrassed by the expressions of deserved praise - we may blush or even cry, we all have Scripture: 1 Peter Denomination: Pentecostal.

We had this big master plan to break it into sections. We wanted to have at least one congregational song, mixed in with a narrative, mixed in with an artsy song, as a road map to get our heads around how we were going to convey these different sections of the story. I had never really thought much about congregational songwriting. It's not that I don't like it, but I tend to think other people are better at it than me.
Behind The Song: Chris Tomlin Shares The Heart Behind His Song “Is He Worthy?”
On this album I was in this situation where I needed to try to do something I had never done before. I have been going to a liturgical style church for about 6 years now, and part of it is that I'm such a word nerd, but I love how rich the language is in these old liturgies that are hundreds of years old.
I love that the word "liturgy" means "the work of the people. That caused me to think about writing a congregational song like that. I wrote the verses with the call and response sections, and then I had no idea how to write the chorus. I thought about how this album is about the resurrection, and I remembered how in Revelation 5 this wonderful scene unfolds where John is looking around and realizing that nobody can be found worthy to break the seal and open the scroll and to ascend to the Throne.

He is weeping loudly because there is nobody worthy to do this thing. He is told, "no behold there is someone Who is worthy. Revelation NIV : "Then I looked and heard the voice of many angels, numbering thousands upon thousands, and ten thousand times ten thousand. They encircled the throne and the living creatures and the elders. In a loud voice they were saying: 'Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!
O death, where is your victory? O death where is your sting? No one comes to the Father except through Me. A lot of this record was informed by N. Wright's book Surprised by Hope. That's what got me started on this "Resurrection Letters" journey ten years ago.
Is He Worthy?
I put out an album about thirteen years ago called The Far Country, which was inspired by C. The opening title track says " this is a far country, not my home " in the chorus.
There's a line in my song "Lay Me Down" that says, " I'll open up my eyes on the skies I've never known, in the place where I belong, and I'll realize His love is just another word for Home. They gently pointed out that this is not a far country, and this is actually God's earth and Eden that was broken. The Bible and the Book of Revelation tells us that God is redeeming and repairing and making new what was broken. He's not wiping the slate clean and starting over. It is not that God is making a new world, but God is making the world new.
There's a difference in the way we think about it. I grew up with a hazy theology about heaven and the idea that "it's all going to burn down here anyway.
For you and me, He didn't destroy us and make us new people.
