Let us worship the Triune God.
Hear the word of the Lord:
The Lord reigns; he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed; he has put on strength as his belt.
Yes, the world is established; it shall never be moved.
Your throne is established from of old;
you are from everlasting.
Have you ever considered the implications of this worship service? Have you actually considered what happens when we gather as one family to worship Father, Son, and Spirit? According to Paul, we are seated in heavenly places. The One who has elected us before the world began to be recipients of His grace, also takes us to be in His presence. When we confess our sins, we are confessing them before the Throne of Grace, when we praise Him in song, we are praising Him together with the angels, when we confess our common faith, we are confessing with the saints gone before us, when we hear the word preached we are hearing the Word of God to His people, when we eat bread and drink wine, we are communing with Christ in the heavenlies. He is feeding us, not we ourselves. In the end, all things are gifts from God so that no one may boast.
Let us Pray.
Our God, You made us alive in Christ Jesus so that we may be raised to newness of life and to worship you in the heavenlies. Teach us to worship you not as ordinary sinners, but as resurrected saints, for we desire to walk after your truth.
