We’ve No Less Days to Sing God’s Praise Then When We First Begun
O come, let us worship and bow down: let us kneel before the LORD our maker. – Psalm 95:6
And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. – Luke 2:15
Eternity baffles me.
Why not? Even the finite cosmos overwhelms my cognition and imagination.
If Heaven and eternity occupy the same dimension, then I have no idea what to expect except the undiluted presence of God in all of God's love and glory.
So, will Heaven be an eternal choir rehearsal? I doubt it, but if it is, we’ll love it – because we’ll be singing God’s praise and we won’t be bored, tired, or fidgety. We know that because once a thousand years have passed it will seem like we just started, and the praise will be real and from a joyful heart.
Impatient folks will be focused and engaged; the lethargic will be energized; overachievers will be relaxed. All ears will be tuned, and all voices will harmonize. There will be no frustration and no straining to hear or be heard.
Everything we do and everything we say will give praise to God.
When we play, it will be a symphony. When we walk, it will be a ballet of praise. When we converse with one another, it will be sacred opera. There will be one great song where every breath will be a celebration of the glory of God.
Words cannot describe it; no thought can contain it; no description can ever be adequate.
There will be no less days to sing God’s praise and no less praise to fill the days than at the beginning. Everything will always be fresh and new. The seven-step scale will be obsolete as new tonalities emerge.
It is going to be exciting!
I plan to be there whatever "there" means. I hope to recognize you in some way and there is one way. It is the way of grace – amazing grace that saved a wretch like me and every other soul that has taken the journey.
What is your response to God’s grace in your life? Embrace it. Accept the gift and begin the journey.
