two way grace

Wednesday April 17th, Revelation 5:  11 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. 12 In a loud voice they sang:    "Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain, to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and praise!"  And worthy are those who follow the lambs calling to be humble servants to one another to receive the glory of God.  Think of the irony of the message, the sacrificial Pascal lamb rather than the gift to God is the gift bearer from God.  The call then goes to you and I to also be the bearers of this gift of grace to one another.  Not just to the ones we love, not just to the ones we agree with, not just to the ones like us, but especially to the ones with whom we disagree, find hard to love, and are different.  Then the sharing of grace becomes a two way street and what is glorified is God.
