Heaven as a Pattern for Worship :: PODCAST

Presented at Curwensville Alliance Church on 7/9/2017 by Pastor Steve Shields

Where is the best place to learn a skill or a trade? For example, If you wanted to learn to make Italian food, where would you go? Lots of places, but if you’re a serious chef, you’ll probably consider Italy.

French food – Paris.

If you’re going to learn to speak Mandarin, your best bet would be to go to China. You can learn from teachers here in the States, but any International Worker will tell you that they really learned the language when they went to the source.

If you’re going to learn to drive heavy equipment, you don’t go to Perkins Family Restaurants to learn, right? No, you go where it’s already happening, and you learn there.

Are you seeing a principle emerging?

If you want to learn to do something,
look at people who are doing it and learn from them.

Let’s take that principle and apply it to worship.

Where does worship occur – I mean really great worship? You might think of a church you know or a choir you’ve heard or a worship band you know. “When we were at Willis’ church – man that worship was GREAT!”

I have a better idea: If we want to find good worship, let’s look into heaven.

After all, that’s the source, right?

And where would you turn in the Bible to get a picture of heaven? You can find glimpses of it in several Old and New Testament books. You can look to Isaiah – when the prophet finds himself before the throne of God. But the book of Revelation has, probably, the most descriptive passages on the subject.

In this podcast, we look at the opening verses of Revelation and see what we can learn about worship.
