What is worship like in heaven? And can our worship on earth look more like that?
In heaven there are thousand and hundreds of thousands worshiping the Lord – so it is ok if we worship in large crowds! Of course, it is ok to worship with 1 or 2 people, too!
Worship is all about the Lord – centered on God’s position and power and love, and focused on giving Him glory.
Worship is about the WHOLE earth coming before God – people from every tribe, tongue, people, and language. On earth, that is a big challenge – what language should our worship be in? What style? We argue over these things – but we need to remember this picture of heaven – and work for it now. We need to focus on Christ more than our preferences.
Worship is full of people who live their faith – even to the point of death. They draw near to God who is their Shepherd and gives them life – and He wipes away the tears from their eyes.
This is a great picture of worship – and the goal we should be aiming for.
This week, keep this picture in mind as you head to worship on Sunday morning. No matter what style of music – this picture is about the heart of worship, and all about Jesus.
