Joyful worship


Do you believe that among all the throng of those who see the Lord face to face, there is one dull, cold, careless worshipper? Look through the seraphim and cherubim: they are all flaming ones, burning with intense desire 949400_love_is_musicand fervent adoration. Look through the hosts of angels: they are all His ministers that do His pleasure, and bless Him while they do it. Search through all those sanctified and glorified bands of spirits, and you shall not find one with half-closed eye wearily praising his Master. Heaven consists in joyful praise.

Look at the very birds on earth, how they shame us! Dear little creatures, if you watch them when they are singing, you will sometimes wonder how so much sound can come out of such diminutive bodies. How they throw their whole selves into the music, and seem to melt themselves away in song! How the wing vibrates, the throat pulsates, and every part of their body rejoices to assist the strain! This is the way we ought to praise God.

If birds that are sold at three for two farthings yet render God such praise, how much more heartily ought we to sing before Him?

Notes on Heaven


The light of heaven is the face of Jesus Christ
The joy of heaven is the presence of Jesus Christ
The song of heaven is the name of Jesus Christ
The theme of heaven is the sacrifice of Jesus Christ
The worship of heaven is lordship of Jesus Christ
The fullness of heaven is the person of Jesus Christ
The attraction of heaven is the beauty of Jesus Christ

In heaven we will learn:
the person of God
the plan of God
the power of God.

Of course, we can foretaste these, even from here!

See you there
