The Beginning and End of Worship

May 7, 2009

Here’s a great quote from the book “Worship Matters” by Bob Kauflin that I’m reading.

“Magnifying God’s greatness begins with the proclamation of objective, biblical truths about God, but it ends with the expression of deep holy affections towards God.  We aren’t simply reciting facts about God, like students reviewing their multiplication tables.  God wants us to delight in him (Psalm 37:4).  He is exalted when all our energies are directed to one end – being satisfied in who he is. “The engagement of the heart in worship is the coming alive of the feelings and emotions and affections of the heart,” John Piper writes. “Where feelings for God are dead, worship is dead.”
