Celebration of Discipline :: Worship

The Discipline of Worship

“To worship is to experience Reality, to touch Life. It is to know, to feel, to experience the resurrected Christ in the midst of the gathered community.”

“Worship is the human response to the divine initiative.”

“Until God touches and frees our spirit we cannot enter this realm.”

“The pervasive sinfulness of human beings becomes evident when contrasted with the radiant holiness of God. Our fickleness becomes apparent once we see God’s faithfulness. To understand his grace is to understand our guilt.”

“We worship the Lord not only because of who he is, but also because of what he has done. The God of the Bible is the God who acts.”

“Activity is the enemy of adoration.”

“One grave temptation we all face is to run around answering calls to service without ministering to the Lord himself.”

“While living out the demands of our day, we are filled with inward worship and adoration. We work and play and eat and sleep, yet we are listening, ever listening, to our Teacher.”

“I determined to listen to his vocabulary: is he addressing me through those singing birds or that sad face? I sought to allow him to move through every action: my fingers while writing, my voice while speaking. My desire was to punctuate each minute with inward whisperings of adoration, praise, and thanksgiving.”
