Revelation 22:3:Full employment.
“3 No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.”NIV
‘’The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him.’’
In the New Living Translation, this reads: ‘’and his servants will worship him.’’
In the Bible worship involves service. It isn’t just singing to God or praying to God, but it is also living wholeheartedly for him. It’s obedience; it involves doing His will. It embraces the whole of life. As Jock Anderson wrote in his book, ‘Worship the Lord’, God wants worship that is living, and living that is worship. David Pawson once said that for the Christian the whole of life is sacred, and the only thing that is secular is sin. Everything we do should be offered to God as worship, and if we can’t offer it to Him, we ought not to be doing it.
In the future renewed universe, we won’t be sitting around on fluffy white clouds playing harps! We will be fully employed. Here is the evidence in Revelation. We will have ample opportunity to worship God with our service. We who belong to Him, and who will have been made like Him (‘’…his name will be written’’ on our ‘’foreheads’’) will know the privilege of serving Him for ever.
