WORSHIP

“When you cannot rejoice in feelings, circumstances or conditions, rejoice in the Lord.” A.B. Simpson

“If God were small enough to be understood, He would not be big enough to be worshiped.” Evelyn Underhill

“If we only spent more of our time in looking at Him we should soon forget ourselves.” Martin Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

“To worship God in truth is to recognize Him for being who He is, and to recognize ourselves for what we are.” Brother Lawrence

“We may be truly said to worship God, though we lack perfection; but we cannot be said to worship Him if we lack sincerity.” Stephen Charnock

“He (Blackelock) said or prayed this “come o my soul in sacred lays attempt thy great Creator’s praise:” Now he didn’t say “praise the Lord”, he said “let’s attempt it.” A. W. Tozer

“The end we ought to propose to ourselves is to become, in this life, the most perfect worshippers of God we can possibly be, as we hope to be through all eternity.” Brother Lawrence

“God cannot be worshipped idly, sluggishly, lazily, and we need to realize that the great reason for failure in spiritual development comes from the lack of earnest, valiant wrestling for the highest good our soul can see.” George Fox

“Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will approve here, and reward you when he cometh in the clouds of heaven.” John Wesley

“With our loss of the sense of majesty has come the further loss of religious awe and consciousness of the divine Presence. We have lost our spirit of worship and our ability to withdraw inwardly to meet God in adoring silence. Modern Christianity is simply not producing the kind of Christian who can appreciate or experience the life in the Spirit. The words, ‘Be still, and know that I am God,’ mean next to nothing to the self-confident, bustling worshiper in this middle period of the twentieth century.” A. W. Tozer, The Knowledge Of The Holy
