In Heaven, Praise is 24/7

Pop? Rap? Contemporary Christian? Where does your radio dial sit? In my family, depending on whose car you are in, the radio dial turns from sports to light rock to talk radio to Christian praise music. I think if God had a radio, He’d tune into praise and worship. Check out these verses from Revelation 4:

“In the center, around the throne (God’s), were four living creatures,… Day and night they never stop saying:

‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty, who was, and is, and is to come.’

Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor, and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before him who sits on the throne, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before the throne and say:

‘ You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they were created and have their being.’ “

Revelation 4: 6b, 8b-11 (NIV)

Chapter 4 in Revelation describes God’s throne room in heaven. It’s filled with tons of cool stuff like God, His throne, the Holy Spirit, the twenty-four elders, and the living creatures with loads of eyes and wings, but what I really like is the praise—non-stop, 24/7. Look at verse 8 again:

“Day and night they never stop saying,…”

Never. When you’re at the pool, they’re praising Him. When you’re eating snow cones, they’re praising him. When you’re sleeping in, they’re praising Him. They never stop. Take some time today to join them. God is worthy.
