Worship: The Normal Employment of Moral Beings
The twenty-four elders fall down before Him who sits on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying: "You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and by Your will they exist and were created." —Revelation 4:10-11
All of the examples that we have in the Bible illustrate that glad and devoted and reverent worship is the normal employment of moral beings. Every glimpse that is given us of heaven and of God's created beings is always a glimpse of worship and rejoicing and praise because God is who He is.
The apostle John in Revelation 4:10-11 gives us a plain portrayal of created beings around the throne of God....
I can safely say, on the authority of all that is revealed in the Word of God, that any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven. Whatever Happened to Worship?, 13.
"Lord, please don't let me ever become bored with worship! I pray that today—and throughout this month—You might enhance my vision of Your glory and draw me into heartfelt worship. Amen."
