WORSHIP QUOTABLES - PART 1

Have You Ever Wondered What Does God Think Of Our Worship?

"The revelation of God is the fuel for the fire of our worship." - Matt Redman

"Worship has a purpose. We don't worship for worship's sake. We don't sing, clap, pray and rejoice for our enjoyment or fulfillment but for the Lord. The Holy Father, the Holy Son and the Holy Spirit are objects of our worship." - LaMar Boschman

"Worship is our reason for being." - Tom Kraeuter

"Worship is the believer's utmost priority and highest occupation." - LaMar Boschman

"Worship is a verb." - Robert Webber

"Worship is an attitude expressed." - Judson Cornwall

"Worship is always a now activity." - Judson Cornwall

"Worship is an exercise of the Holy Spirit directed primarily to God." - Ralph Martin

"Where feelings for God are dead worship is dead." - John Piper

"Regardless of how magnificent the musical moment are, unless your heart is fully engaged in the worship being expressed ... it is still only music." - Darlene Zschech

"Those who worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth." - Jesus

Craig Barnes - "The worship service features two sides of a sacred conversation. Those who lead in worship need to help people recognize themselves in the presence of God. They must also speak God’s words to the people so that they will know they are on holy ground. That is the experience people are longing for in worship. But before such a sacred conversation happens in worship, it must happen for those who lead in worship in their own soul."

Philip Butin - "We worship in the context of divine grace. It is God who is at work in our worship. We can rest knowing that the success of a service depends on God, not exclusively on our own effort. We don’t worship in order to gain God’s favor. We worship because of God’s prior favor to us, because of God’s invitation of us. This has redeeming implications for thinking about aesthetics, the motivation of worship leaders, and the content of each worship service."

Very true, worship belongs to the Lord and as a worship leader there were times when I was weak & felt unworthy and that were times when the Lord move mightily. I've learnt that worship is beyond formulas & techniques, it is a lifestyle we MAINTAIN!

Some of these thoughts will be posted in Worship Quotables - Part 2
