How Blessed We Are To Bless Our Lord
Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"Now when these things have been so prepared, The priests are continually entering the outer tabernacle performing the divine worship"
Yesterday I shared with you that, as a kingdom of priests to our God (2 Peter 2:9, Revelation 1:5-6) we have been awakened to this great privilege, extended to all of God’s children, this ministry and response to God our Father, this grace of "continually entering" His presence "performing the divine worship." We are blessed, as this royal priesthood, as responsive and obedient ministers of the inner court, to experience in God’s presence "divine worship" unto our Lord, for His glory and will. Here, in the midst of "divine worship" is where we profoundly behold "the excellencies of Him" as Peter shared (1 Peter 2:9).
"To behold the beauty of the Lord" is the way David put it (Psalm 27:4). Today I’d like to briefly consider the phrase "Now when all these things have been prepared." Contextually this was speaking of preparing the temple (Hebrews 9:1-5) so that the old covenant priests could perform their "divine worship." Today, for you and I, as blood-washed, regenerated, Spirit-filled children of our God under the New Covenant of Jesus Christ, our "high priest of the good things to come" (Hebrews 9:11), we know our Lord Jesus has accomplished everything concerning our salvation and our lives forever with Him. So I am just saying that this statement "these things have been so prepared" is true right now, forever for all of us, in Christ our Lord. Everyone is called and Christ has "prepared" for all, that all of His children may be "continually entering" and "performing the divine worship" as His kingdom of priests.
Yes this grace is for all and it is a beautiful performance, isn’t it? When you step into the inner court of His presence, your Abba Father God sees you "performing the divine worship." You are performing for Him alone. Come into the presence of your God. He sees your worship as a divine performance. How blessed we are to bless our Lord. Hallelujah!
