the door is open for worship.
revelation 4: 1 Then I looked, and, oh!—a door open into Heaven. The trumpet-voice, the first voice in my vision, called out, “Ascend and enter. I’ll show you what happens next.” 2 I was caught up at once in deep worship and, oh!—a Throne set in Heaven with One Seated on the Throne. (message bible)
there only 2 things that stand in the way of you walking thru the door of worship…
1. you stand in the way with pride.
pride is – the consciousness of one’s own dignity. i love the story of david when he chose to bring back the ark of the covenant from obed edoms house to jerusalem. every 6 paces they would slaughter a bull. the 12 mile journey would have been a bloody mess, but the moment they entered jerusalem david is out front dancing and worshipping God. His own wife despised him and basically threw him under the bus when she saw him. his response was…basically shut up woman…i aint doing this for you and i will be even more undignified. i believe david was not conscious of his own dignity he was conscious of his gods desire for worship! what about you?
2. someone else stands in the way…when you give them the power to.
Romans 12:2 don’t conform to the pattern of this world-
The word pattern has to do with a die – it was a shape that was cast by exerting great pressure on something! Pressure is real! we face it everyday to conform to a set of standards. the patter of this world is not to be a worshipper, so if you give power to the opinions of others, you are basically allowing them to stand in the doorway of worship!
remember the one place god desires for us to be is close to him, no better place to be than in a place of worship. you want access to the throne room, then you gotta walk through the door. walk through the door and enter into the throne zone!
