Archbishop William Templeton:
“Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God.
It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness, nourishment of mind by His truth, purifying of imagination by His beauty, opening of the heart to His love, and submission of will to His purpose.
And all this gathered up in adoration is the greatest of human expressions of which we are capable.”
That’s what it’s all about! I challenge you all to read this and chew on it, and then employ it next Sunday. Actually, don’t wait until then; employ it as you study His word, and in every spare moment you have to worship our Father, think about this. What does it mean to worship? How is every part of our being engaged in the act of worship? How does worship work both for my good and God’s glory?
Think on Jesus’ faithfulness, love, justice, mercy, glory, compassion, sovereignty, patience, kindness, etc., and you will want to worship! Read His word, contemplate His majesties, and you will grow in your comprehension of His greatness, even though you are just skimming the top of His wonders. How can we be depressed or worried when we serve such an mind-blowing Lord?
Let’s worship Jesus with every breath today!
