The Worship Quote of the Week for (09/08/1998):

Where Does Worship Begin?
Today's WORSHIP QUOTE is another from songwriter Graham Kendrick.

Everybody worships. Whether if is a hero, possessions, success, pleasure, a
political cause, a carved idol or oneself, the way we live and behave makes
evident the things we love and give ourselves to. It is in our very nature to
worship, and that inner drive is God-given; the disaster is that as part of a
fallen race, we have replaced the object of our worship. To be converted to
faith in Jesus Christ is to return to the worship of the true God, and to
dethrone all rivals to his authority.

-- Graham Kendrick, from WORSHIP, Kingsway Publications, 1984, p.24.

[May we continue to turn our God-given worshiping nature toward the only
worthy object. The source becomes the goal.]

Have a great week,
