It might seem pretty ambitious of us to think we might know what it’s all about, but we think we have a take on it.
It’s all about worship.
Where it’s all going and where it all ends up is worship. Don’t believe us? Read this from The Revelation, chapter 15.
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. In a loud voice they were saying:
“Worthy is the Lamb, who was slain,
to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength
and honor and glory and praise!”
Then I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all that is in them, saying:
“To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
be praise and honor and glory and power, forever and ever!”
The four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
Take a couple minutes to listen to Agnus Dei, written and performed by Michael W. Smith.
John Piper once said, “Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t.”
Want to live for the kingdom? Live a life of worship.
What does a life lived in worship look like?
Living worship is focusing every thought, every word, and every act on bringing glory to God. The apostle Paul put it this way in his letter to the Christ-followers in Rome, “I urge you, brothers and sisters, because of God’s mercy toward us, to offer up your lives as living sacrifices, set apart to please him.” Worship should be the end result of everything that we do. Worship in everything. Everything in worship.
A sacrifice has one purpose. Worship.
