What really happens in Christian Worship?
Here's a good worship quote for the week:

"It is he who leads our worship, bears our sorrows on his heart and intercedes for us, presenting us to the Father in himself as God's dear children, and uniting us with himself in his life in the Spirit. To reduce worship to this two-dimensional thing--God and ourselves, today--is to imply that God throws us back upon ourselves to make our response. It ignores the fact that God has already provided for us that response which alone is acceptable to him--the offering made for the whole human race in the life, obedience and passion of Jesus Christ. . . . Whatever else our faith is, it is a response to a response already made for us and continually being made for us in Christ, the pioneer of our faith." (James Torrance, Worship, Community and the Triune God of Grace. pp.29-30)

I like this description of worship as far as it describes the interaction of the worshiper and the Trinity. I wouldn't say it is a complete description, but for what it says, I say "Right On!" or "Amen" if you prefer. (The "Brother" is optional for both responses.)

God Bless,
JAy.
