Rooted Worship

“Our worship is rooted in who God is and in God’s purposes. We worship because it is natural to respond to the mystery that irradiates life. We know God to be holy and pure, just and true, compassionate and loving. God is worthy to receive our praise and acclaim, worthy of our listening ears and offered hearts. The ‘worth-ship’ of God is the origin of human worship. We also worship because we are created to reflect and glorify the One in whose image we are made. Eastern Christians believe we are most truly ourselves when we glorify God, finding our ‘perfection and fulfillment in worship.'”
from Soul Feast by Marjorie Thompson, p. 58.
