• If the heart of sinfulness is self-centeredness, the heart of all biblical religion is Christ-centeredness: in short, it is worship.

 

  • In our selfish sinfulness we view all there is through our will and plans alone. Our goals and hopes invariably turn on our desire to place ourselves at the center of the universe. The demon of SELF destroys the ability to worship.

 

  • The sign that self is broken is true worship: God becomes the center of our lives, the focus of delight, the joyfully acknowledgement that Jesus Christ is the Coming King, the Creator of All, the Redeemer of mankind, the Sustainer of this universe and all in it.

 

  • In this sense, none but the transformed can truly worship — and they too discover how much more transformation is still needed. Thus all worship a marker of what will be in the new heaven and the new earth, the home of righteousness, when the children of God have been ‘glorified’ (Rom. 8:30), and God is all in all.

 

  • In anticipation of that day, and ‘in view of God’s mercy’, we offer our bodies ‘as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God’, for this is our ‘spiritual worship’ (Rom. 12:1).
