WHAT'S UP REAL MEN!!!
Worthy is The Lamb
Heaven is going to be awesome! Just reading in the Bible about what heaven is going to be like is exciting. As men who have accepted Jesus into our heart, heaven is now our natural home. We are no longer children of this world, but of the world to come. Revelation 4:6-8 gives an awesome picture of just one aspect of heaven.
And around the throne, on each side of the throne, are four living creatures…and the four living creatures, each of them with six wings, are full of eyes all around and within, and day and night they never cease to say,
“Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was and is and is to come!” – Rev 4:6-8
It continues after that that every time these creatures give glory to God who sits on the throne, elders fall down and bow; they cast their crowns before the throne and say
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.” – Rev 4:11
What an awesome display of worship to God! I don’t really think our worship should look that different. In our time with God, whether that is our personal time, our time in church, or with our family, we should be worshiping God like the creatures and elders do in heaven. Their words are entirely focused on God, not themselves. They declare how holy God is, how worthy He is to receive honor and power, and declare how He created the world. Along with that comes a physical demonstration. The elders bow and cast their crowns before the throne of God. Today, let’s spend some time in worship to God, and let’s focus our worship not on ourselves, but just on the character and majesty of God, His nature as our Creator, King, and Savior, and let’s worship Him not just in words, but in physical demonstration. Let’s look like we are participating in heaven!
