A post from Matt Hoppe:
Below are a few quotes concerning worship from people you may or may not recognize. I’m curious about your responses to some of their quotes and was wondering if you had some perspectives or thoughts of your own.
“A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word, ‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.” – C.S. Lewis
“Business underlies everything in our national life, including our spiritual life. Witness the fact that in the Lord’s Prayer, the first petition is for daily bread. No one can worship God or love his neighbor on an empty stomach.” – Woodrow Wilson
“I come from the performance world, but the idea of a worship song is different. It’s useful music.” – John Tesh
“I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love.” – Henry Ward Beecher
“I’ve explored the worship side, the pop side, and the film scoring side of me.” – Michael W. Smith
“Man, so long as he remains free, has no more constant and agonizing anxiety than find as quickly as possible someone to worship.” – Fyodor Dostoevsky
“The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. The greatest form of praise is the sound of consecrated feet seeking out the lost and helpless.” – Billy Graham
Does any of this resonate? Does any of it make you shudder? Tell us about it.
