Scripture for Today: Revelation 5:13 “And every created thing which is in heaven and on earth and under the earth and on the sea, and all things in them, I heard saying, ‘To Him who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb, be blessing and honor and glory and dominion forever and ever.’“
I just finished a series of concerts with my French Gospel Chorale. The program was called, “Total Praise” and I was sorry to see it end. These concerts were the result of hours and hours of rehearsal throughout the year. As the majestic music rose to the cathedral ceilings, I could not help but think what praise would be like in Heaven. Our hearts will soar with our voices to the honor of the One who sits on the throne!
All those rehearsals are so important. It is a time of learning and memorizing the words, the notes and the timing. Our verse for today describes an unbelievable concert of praise given to the King of Heaven and the Lamb of God. It will be a perfect concert. There will be no false notes, no forgotten words and no missed entrances. It will be the most perfect sublime music ever heard! And it will be to His glory.
Here on earth, it is a time of rehearsal. We praise Him but it is not yet perfect. Sin can make us sharp or flat. We live with that old nature. We can come close to perfect music, but we will always be a little “off.” The Lord is gracious to accept our imperfect praise as here on earth, this is just the rehearsal.
One day we will be part of that innumerable throng singing perfect praise! Worthy is the Lamb of total praise! Happy rehearsing!
