WORSHIPPING WORSHIP


…according to Jesus, you cannot find yourself until you lose yourself, so also you cannot find excellent corporate worship until you stop trying to find excellent corporate worship and pursue God himself.“The way you forget about yourself is by focusing on God–not by singing about doing it, but by doing it.“If you wish to deepen the worship of the people of God, above all deepen their grasp of his ineffable majesty in his person and in all his works.

“We focus on God himself, and thus we become more godly and learn to worship–and collaterally we learn to edify one another, forbear with one another, challenge one
another.
D.A. Carson

[Perhaps then…we would do well to consider that the Gospel itself — as the FULLEST revelation of God himself — is the primary means (verbally in preaching/visually in sacrament) whereby God governs the whole of His worship? — mm]
