Saved for His delight and praise

And they sang a new song, saying:

“ You are worthy to take the scroll,
And to open its seals;
For You were slain,
And have redeemed us to God by Your blood
Out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation

JP: Worthwhile read from the Irish Calvinist. Here he comments on Revelation 5:9:

The God-Centered-ness of Your Salvation

Excerpts:

… in Revelation 5 we see that Christ was slain and at the same time he actively purchased a people with his blood from varied backgrounds. Who did he do this for?

If you are a Christian you are saved from God (from his just wrath), you are saved by God (by his sacrifice) and you are saved for God (for his delight and praise). It is healthy to meditate and rejoice in this reality. Let the gospel of God’s abounding grace forge humility in your self-seeking heart that it might be bent on the promotion of divine mercy and love.
