In worship we add our voices to those of the “great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages,” crying out, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne.” Faith-filled saints from every time and place unite their voices to magnify the Lamb of God. As His beloved children, we “shall see Him as He is.” Joined with the throng of angels and myriad of saints, we will “serve Him day and night in His temple.”
In our earthly tension between saint and sinner, faith and doubt, sacred and profane, we earnestly seek Jesus to calm our fears, comfort our spirits and forgive our sins. The Holy Spirit, through faith in Christ, propels us toward our heavenly home while fortifying us in Word and Sacrament for the joys and trials of our earthly home. In the midst of our constant struggle as believers, we need to be blessed. And so we are. The poor in spirit, the meek, the hungry, the thirsty, the merciful, the pure and the persecuted are all part of the throng that will most certainly inherit the kingdom of heaven.
