God’s glory is magnified and increased when all people everywhere praise him
When a choir sings in unity, it’s powerful. But when people sing in four-part harmony, there’s a depth and richness and fullness to the sound that is like nothing else. In a similar way, the breadth of the peoples praising God in the new creation will bring him a range and depth of glory that we can’t image when compared to a mono-cultural offering of praise.
Or imagine a painting. If only other artists from same school like it, then maybe it’s not all that great. But imagine that not just artists, but lay people from all nations and down through the centuries since – in fact everyone who has every stood in front of it – says, ‘That’s breath-taking!’ The glory of that painting is then much greater than if just a few like-minded people admire it. Similarly, God’s glory is magnified and increased when all people everywhere through all time find him worthy of all their praise.
