“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).
For some reason this passage brings to mind those who do not have time for worship but, seemingly, have time for anything else. To scream “misplaced priorities” is obvious, but a solution may lie in a redeemed perspective on time and the One not bound by its perceived limitations. That God is forever and ever, points to his authority over time and space. For him, a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like a day (2 Peter 3:8). It serves as a humbling reminder that there was a time when I was not, and a time when I will not be. The Lord our God, however, has always been and will forever be. In this light, he should receive priority and preeminence over all other things being deemed more important, but will soon pass away.
