The bottom line to all this is simple: either you can praise and honor him now by accepting God’s gift of grace so that when you join in this ultimate worship experience you will be doing so from the choir of the redeemed, or you can persist in wanting things your own way and when you join this ultimate worship experience you will be doing so from the choir of the condemned. But make no mistake about it, one way or another your tongue is going to confess Jesus Christ is Lord. There is no getting around it.
