“And when the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to Him who sits on the throne, to Him who lives forever and ever” (Revelation 4:9).

Nine times in his heavenly vision, John mentions God upon his throne as the centerpiece of spirit-filled worship. The image of a throne is a powerful visual of worship’s sole objective—an acknowledgement that all power, dominion, control, supremacy, and command rests exclusively upon Him. To introduce any other preferences or sentimental elements to our expression of worship is but a continued pursuit of self-enthronement.
