When I read texts like 2 Peter 3:18 that speak of us glorifying God, I tend to remember the stanza from Amazing Grace that goes:
When we’ve been here ten thousand years…
bright shining as the sun.
We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise…
then when we’ve first begun.
All of eternity we will be singing the praises of God, to God. I don’t think this means that we’ll just be sitting around singing. But that all that we do will be to the glory of God and that with our flesh totally redeemed we will be able to truly sing praises with all that is in us.
I also think of two other verses:
And one cried to another and said: “Holy, holy, holy is the LORD of hosts; The whole earth [is] full of His glory!”—Isaiah 6:3 NKJV
The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes around and within. And they do not rest day or night, saying: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was and is and is to come!”—Revelation 4:8 NKJV
Since we will be spending all of eternity speaking words like this, why don’t we start today to praise our God and recognize His glory!
