In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord seated on a throne, high and exalted, and the train of his robe filled the temple. (NIV) Isaiah 6:1
There is one guarantee in life, someday each one of us will see the eternal King – we will meet Him face to face at the foot of His throne. Isaiah sees the eternal King, Jesus (John 12:41) seated on a throne which is a symbol of royal authority.
He is seated on a throne, high and exalted because He is superior to all things! Although many today may not acknowledge Him as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords, we know that there will be a time when kings and princes will see Him and bow down, and . . .’every knee will bow before me; every tongue will confess to God.’ (Romans 14:11)
He is seated on the throne because He reigns. He is a ruler with power over death. He is the Creator of all things – the stars, the moon, the mountains, the rivers, the land and the seas, all the creatures, including you and me.
He is seated on the throne and is worthy of worship. The seraphs (angelic or heavenly beings) are stationed above the throne of God, calling to one another: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.” (Isaiah 6:3)
Just as the seraphs worshipped God, we are to worship Him. Worship is what brings us into God’s presence. When do you make time to worship? How do you worship God? Is your life a reflection of your worship? When will you become a person of worship?
