Worship and the Heavenly Jerusalem

HEBREWS 12:18-24 “You have come to…the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to innumerable angels in festal gathering, and to the assembly of the firstborn” (vv. 22-23)

“When we come into worship we enter into the heavenly sanctuary and join with ‘the spirits of the righteous made perfect’ (Heb. 12:22-24). Though this reality is not apparent to our eyes, our worship includes not only the members of our individual church but Moses, Esther, Augustine, Calvin, and every other believer from history are worshiping as well.” from Tabletalk Magazine, “Into the Word” August 7-08
