The Worship Quote of the Week for (01/03/2006):

Worship as Response to the Glory of God
Today’s WORSHIP QUOTE is taken from the first issue of what promises to be a wonderful new resource for pastors, church musicians, and anyone interested in a better understanding of biblical worship. I strongly suggest that you sign up for Ron Man’s free monthly newsletter. (See instructions below.) The first issue of WORSHIP NOTES has as its theme “Defining Worship.” I think you will benefit from the full page of insightful definitions.


Worship is our response to the glory of God:
Recognizing His glory with our minds,
Cherishing His glory with our hearts,
Proclaiming His glory with our mouths,
Celebrating His glory in all of life.

— Ron Man, WORSHIP NOTES, Vol. 1. No. 1, January 2006.
WORSHIP NOTES is a free monthly e-mail digest of reflections, views, news, and reviews concerning biblical worship. It is produced by Ron Man as a publication of Worship Resources, a department of Greater Europe Mission devoted to “strengthening the body of Christ in the U.S., Europe and around the world by promoting the priority, understanding and practice of God-centered, Christ-exalting, biblically-based worship.” To subscribe, please go to and click on “Worship Notes” at the top. There are many other free resources there also. I particularly enjoy the fact that many of the articles on worship are translated into different languages.

Many blessings to you in the New Year.
