D.A. Carson on Worship


"Worship embraces all of life and every location. Worship is the consistent offering of all of one's life and time and energy and body and resources to God; it is profound God-centeredness. There is a sense in which true Christians should never not be worshiping." D.A. Carson (Basics for Believers: An Exposition of Philippians)

"Worship is the consistent offering of all of one's life and time and energy and body and resources to God . . ."

While not incorrect, that statement seems to me incomplete. "By faith God wishes to be worshiped in this way, that we receive from Him those things which He promises and offers."

The first act of worship is not to offer to God, but to receive from God. This pleases God.

“Where two or more are gathered in My Name!” Christ is there, He is near, and I make 2, therefore life is clear, everyday and in every way, I will not sway nor stay away, and to the end, I worship Him.
