Welcome to Day 6: Practicing For Eternity
One of the most amazing realities of eternity is that we will worship forever the risen Son!
We will sing new songs… for eternity.
How does “new” continually happen? The reality is that the attributes and depth of God are inexhaustible and when we see Him for who He is, we will have endless praise as our compulsive response.
New songs may be new to you
I am inviting you to step out of your place of comfort and sing a new song. It may be one you didn’t know before… or one that’s never been sung before. It may be in-tune, or may just be a ‘joyful noise’. But the incense of praise is inhabited by God Himself.
So let’s join with heaven in this new 10-minute set:
8When He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb. Each one had a harp, and they were holding golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints. 9And they sang a new song:
“Worthy are You to take the scroll and open its seals, because You were slain, and by Your blood You purchased for God those from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.
10You have made them into a kingdom, priests to serve our God, and they will reign upon the earth.”
11Then I looked, and I heard the voices of many angels and living creatures and elders encircling the throne, and their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands. 12In a loud voice they said:
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing!”
13And I heard every creature in heaven, and on earth, and under the earth, and in 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!”
14And the four living creatures said, “Amen,” and the elders fell down and worshiped.
I challenge you to skip the ipod or radio – but to sing the scripture (Psalms is a good place to start), or sing from memory a new song you learned… and start making up your own heart-lyrics when you forget the words. If you aren’t ready for that yet – then learn a new Biblical worship tune that will fix your eyes on who God is… but be ready to grow into a place of intimate worship with the Lord where you are no longer bound by fear of man, but solely given to loving Jesus with your new songs!
Become more comfortable with the uncomfortable; it’s there you will discover you’ve moved past your previous settlements into new territory.
