In previous blogs I have talked about crying. I cry a lot. Happy, sad, and anger are all emotions that can sometimes bring me to tears. However, there is no other place that can bring me to tears like worshipping does almost every Sunday. I think about the fact that Jesus died for even me!
I am passionate.
Perhaps when we hear the word passion, it makes us think of sexuality. But it is not the case here.
In our Wednesday night Bible class, we are discussing the book of Revelation. Last night we were in chapter 4 where John gets a glimpse into Heaven and sees God’s Throne Room.
There are several places in the Bible when a person had a vision of God’s Throne Room. Daniel, Ezekiel, and Isaiah are just a few in addition to John in Revelation.
Our teacher brought up the point that we also enter the Throne Room when we worship and pray. He said if we really knew where we were and what was there, it would change our worship.
It should change us every single moment of the rest of our lives!
From Revelation 4:
I saw a throne in heaven and someone sitting on it. The one sitting on the throne was as brilliant as gemstones—like jasper and carnelian. And the glow of an emerald circled his throne like a rainbow. Twenty-four thrones surrounded him, and twenty-four elders sat on them. They were all clothed in white and had gold crowns on their heads. From the throne came flashes of lightning and the rumble of thunder. And in front of the throne were seven torches with burning flames. This is the sevenfold Spirit of God. In front of the throne was a shiny sea of glass, sparkling like crystal.
Next time you enter the Throne Room whether at worship or to pray, remember His brilliance, His glow, those Heavenly hosts that surround Him, the flashes of lightning and thunder, the burning flames, and the sea of sparkling glass.
Why do I cry in worship almost every single Sunday? Because I am in God’s Throne Room before the Creator of everything!
And He, Whose awesomeness cannot be described in words, loves even me!
