Worship

In the words of John Piper from his book, Desiring God….. 

“Worship is a way of gladly reflecting back to God the radiance of His worth. This is the ideal. For God surely is more glorified when we delight in His magnificence than when we are so unmoved by it that we scarcely feel anything and only wish we could. Yet He is also glorified by the spark of anticipated gladness that gives rise to the sorrow we feel when our hearts are lukewarm. Even in the miserable guilt we feel over our beastlike insensitivity, the glory of God shines. If God were not gloriously desirable, why would we feel sorrowful for not feasting fully on His beauty?”

You have got to read this book if you haven’t already! Reiterates the Majesty of Christ while explaining our purpose in worship, finding joy in the Lord, and knowing that our chief end is God’s glory. Mm.
