If you are a swifty then being in the audience of a Taylor Swift concert is pretty much your definition of heaven.

Being completely immersed in the music you love, singing in unison with thousands upon thousands of others who share your passion, delighting in the choreography and visual display, standing in the presence of your hero — what more could one want?

A good concert (if Tay Tay isn’t your artist of choice, imagine your favourite musician/band/orchestra) is one of those rare places in life where sensory bliss, emotional joy, a sense of unity, belonging and awe can all be experienced in one glorious moment.

Did you know these kinds of moments are but a pale glimpse of what heaven is like?

The apostle John describes his vision of heaven in Revelation 19:6-7:

Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting:

“Hallelujah!

    For our Lord God Almighty reigns.

Let us rejoice and be glad

    and give him glory!”

Now perhaps  singing endless praises to God sounds more like hell than heaven to you. Perhaps you’ve experienced church services with out of time musicians, out of tune singers and out of date songs – church services you’d rather escape than go on forever.

However, the heavenly concert we get a picture of in John’s vision is glorious, awe inspiring stuff. It is bigger and better than any billion dollar stage production. It is a display of the power and goodness of the creator of the universe. It is a demonstration and celebration of God’s perfect  justice in defeating evil through Jesus’ death and resurrection. It is a place of perfect belonging, love and bliss for all who worship Jesus.

Jesus invites you to this heavenly concert through trusting and believing in him. Do you want a ticket?

Prayer 

Dear Jesus Christ, I want to be part of your heavenly concert. I want to experience the love, belonging and awe of knowing and worshipping you. Please forgive me for rejecting your invitation until now. Please show me how to worship and enjoy you while I wait for entry into your heavenly presence.

Amen.
