THe beginning and perfection of lawful worship is readiness to obey.John Calvin
To adore God is to be lifted outside our selves. To bow in wonder before this transcendent majesty whose glory fills the heavens and whose mighty power spans the wide compass of history and reaches with unerring accuracy into every crevice of time and space, this is to mount up from a grovelling obsession with our own needs to an aweinspiring glimps of the glory of the eternal God.Herbert Carson
Without the heart it is no worship. It is a stage play. It is an acting a part without being that person, really. It is playing the hypocrite.Stephen Charnock
Worship is the adoration of a redeemed people, occupied with God himself.A. W. Pink
Worship is the activity of the new life of a believer in which, recognizing the fulness of hte Godhead as it is revealed in the person of Jesus Christ and his mighty redemptive acts, he seelks by the power of the Holy Spirit to render to the living God the glory, honour and submission which are his due.Robert G. Rayburn
