King, Work and Eternity (Revelation 22:3-5)

Over the next few Sundays we are going to work through the Biblical details of life in Heaven. In this real place–a new heaven and earth–what will we do? We said last week that everything will be centered around the supreme and sovereign King, the Triune God. All good will flow to and from him, for our joy. But does that mean that Heaven will be an endless worship service?

The answer to this question is no and yes. No, we won’t stand around singing forever to God (though we will sing!). But, yes, we will worship. All of life will be worship. How? A huge part of the answer is this: we will work. In praise to the king, we will devote our lives to creating and building and ruling. Yes, ruling. Pray for God’s mercy to prepare you and help you to repent.
