On Mt Zion at Last

"Our feet have been standing within your gates, O Jerusalem" (Psa 122:2)!

In the Old Covenant era, the people of God delighted to come to Jerusalem and to stand on Mt Zion, for that was where God lived with his people. Yet everything about their worship was temporary. It could be (and it was) taken away. But now that Jesus has come and inaugurated the New Covenant, we can come to the heavenly Jerusalem which will never pass away. All of our worship today looks forward to the full and final dwelling of God with us in the New Jerusalem. Every Lord's Day there is within us, not only a deep joy in all that Christ has provided for us, but also a longing for the full worship of heaven where we will see him face to face. This Lord's Day we will look at the heavenly worship revealed in Revelation.
