I sometimes wonder what worship is like in Heaven. I imagine it’s beautiful. Otherworldly. Unlike anything we’ve ever experienced here on earth.
In my mind, Heaven is perfection. The sights, the sounds — everything God created in Heaven is perfect because there’s no sin there. And because there’s no sin, there is an absence of pride; therefore, the focus of worship in Heaven is God.
Whenever the Lord God appeared to someone, the Bible says they bowed down to the ground and worshipped Him. The act of prostrating oneself to the ground in worship to the Lord is a sign of humility. It shows a reverence for, and paying homage to God. It also is reflective of man’s inability to stand in the presence of a holy God. Being in God’s presence is like having a light shone on you; it shows you how utterly insignificant you are compared to God.
The angels are around the throne 24-7 worshipping God crying, “holy, holy, holy, is the Lord of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory” (Isaiah 6:3).
When we worship, the focus of our worship should be God. Worship should be pure and free of pride — or a sense of ones own righteousness.
The Bible says that we should worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. Worship is spiritual. It’s between you and God.
During worship is when we are allowed access into the light of God’s glory. Therefore, we should enter His presence reverently.
I’m looking forward to the day when I get to Heaven and can worship God surrounded by pure perfection; but until that time, I want my worship here on earth to be pure, holy, spiritual, and filled with God’s glory.
