Worship quotes

January 3, 2017

“To worship is to quicken the conscience by the holiness of God, to feed the mind with the truth of God, to purge the imagination by the beauty of God, to open the heart to the love of God, to devote the will to the purpose of God.” William Temple

“The theme of worship is far more central and significant in scripture than many Christians might imagine. Far from being a peripheral subject, it has to do with the fundamental question of how we can be in a right relationship with God and please Him in all that we do. Worship in the New Testament is a comprehensive category describing the Christian’s total existence. Worship is a subject that should dominate our live seven days a week.” David Peterson

“Worship in the Bible may be viewed as a reciprocal exchange between God and His people – an engagement with Him on terms that He proposes and in the way that He alone makes possible in the Holy Spirit.” C. Westerman
“Without worship, we go about miserable.” A.W. Tozer

“Worship changes the worshipper into the image of the One worshipped.” Jack Hayford

“Worship is the appropriate response of God’s people to: 1. The revelation of His attributes. 2. The manifestation of His presence. 3. The revelation of His will. 4. The wonder of His creation. 5. The experience of His benevolent goodness, provision and protection. And 6. The chastening and judgment of our sin.” Author unknown

“God is to be praised with the voice, and the heart should go therewith in holy exultation.” C. H. Spurgeon

“The revelation of God is the fuel for the fire of our worship.” Matt Redman

“Christian worship must contain both the cross and the crown. Sing of majesty and sing of mercy.” Matt Redman

“Any man or woman on this earth who is bored and turned off by worship is not ready for heaven.” A.W. Tozer

“Worship is the believer’s response of all that they are – mind, emotions, will, body – to what God is and says and does.” Warren Wiersbe

“It is not enough for us to be where God is worshipped, if we do not ourselves worship Him.” Matthew Henry

“Surely that which occupies the total time and energies of heaven must be a fitting pattern for earth.” Paul E. Billheimer

“When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.” Lamar Boschman

“Worship is first and foremost for His benefit, not ours, though it is marvelous to discover that in giving Him pleasure, we ourselves enter into what can become our richest and most wholesome experience in life.” Graham Kendrick

“As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape from the pressing needs of modern life.” Richard Foster

    To worship is to live consistent with ascribing the highest worth to the true God revealed in Christ Jesus. (Or to something or someone other than that true God.)
