Heavenly worship is constant worship, so how can my worship be true and result in devoted God-directed daily living?
The apostle John describes four living creatures that worship God day and night in Revelation Chapter Four. These creatures are similar to the angelic beings that we see elsewhere in Scripture, especially of the cherubim in Ezekiel Chapter One and Ten. They also resemble the seraphim in Isaiah Chapter Six. These creatures stand closest to God’s presence. They are so close to God they seem to carry facets of godly characteristics such as: His omniscience, His omnipotence, and His omnipresence.
God’s omniscience is His supreme knowledge of all things. These creatures are covered with eyes on the front and back which impresses us with the idea of God as all-knowing, as well as the understanding that he sees all eternity. God is surprised by nothing. He is the God of what was, is, and is to come. He knows all that was, is, and is to come. He knows everything.
God is omnipotent, He has supreme power. We are reminded of this since each creature mentioned is the chief of its species… a powerful representation of God’s creation. The lion is the king of the jungle. The ox is the powerful beast of burden. The eagle is the most majestic of birds. Man is the apex of God’s creation and in Genesis man is given dominion over all living things.
God is omnipresent. In His all-presence, we see that these creatures have six wings, suggesting unlimited mobility. These creatures also seem to represent the span of God’s created order– the wild represented by the lion, the tame represented by the ox, the sky represented by the eagle, and then mankind who was created in God’s image. God is everywhere. He is in heaven and on earth. Nothing escapes his attention or notice. He is above His creation yet His very presence sustains the Universe.
These creatures see God as He really is, and they worship Him. They say “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.” God is Holy and He is Eternal. This three-fold holy, holy, holy draws our attention to the infinite, eternal, endless, perfect holiness of God. He is Lord. As Lord, He is ruler over everything. He is God. As God, He is Creator of everything. He is Almighty. As Almighty, He has ultimate supreme power over everything. Behold your Holy and Eternal God.
How should God be reflected my daily world? How is true worship that is constant in heaven be constant in my world?
True worship brings you closer to God, which results in God-directed daily living.
Maybe I need to make some changes in my daily world so that I will learn to recognize God and then demonstrate God’s holiness to others? If I lived as if in the presence of God wouldn’t I reflect His presence to those around me?
My daily activity can be God-directed when I let every opportunity move me closer to God.
-Do you love Him, do you love Jesus?
-Do you love His Word?
-Do you have a passion to dig into His word and bring others with you?
That’s how you worship God in your daily life. You echo back to Him His greatness through your bible study, your prayers, your service, and your daily activity.
