AMAZING GOD 


While the last book of the Bible, Revelation, can be difficult to understand, it paints an intriguing portrait of heaven. It says angels gather around the throne of Jesus continuously proclaiming that He alone is holy. “Holy” is a word we use often in reference to Christ, but I would imagine it will take on a whole new meaning in the light of heaven. 


There are a lot of things I don’t know about heaven and what it will actually be like, but one thing I do know is that we will be worshipping God around the clock. Unending praise will be the currency of heaven as we sing: 


Holy, holy, holy are You / Worthy always / Heaven and earth sing an endless hallelujah / You are amazing God 


I’m confident worship will be an integral part of heaven because worship is always our response to God. When I get just a glimpse of His work in my life here on earth, I can’t help but praise Him. So, I can’t imagine how much more glorious (and louder!) the worship in heaven will be when I see Him face to face. 


We were made in the image of God to worship Him every day in every way. The Bible says even the rocks cry out in worship to Him (Luke 19:40). In fact, the world around us testifies to our great Creator.  


The night sky filled with billions of stars reminds me of His attention to detail. The waves crashing on the beach remind me of His power. The California sunshine reminds me of His glory. The smile on my wife’s face reminds me of His faithfulness. The laughter of my children reminds me of His goodness. 


All of creation is Your love song / Melodies of hope and grace / Piercing darkness with forgiveness / You are amazing God 


The world is a wide open invitation to praise the Creator, and I don’t know about you, but I want to spend the rest of my life bringing a slice of heaven down to earth. The best way I know how to do that is by praising God for who He is and what He’s done. 


Heaven’s splendor awaits, but right here in this moment, He’s given us a world of reminders that He’s with us, and He will never leave nor forsake us. And that is amazing news!
