Quote :: Worship

"It is only when men begin to worship that they begin to grow."
--Calvin Coolidge
 
"Religious externals may have meaning for the God-inhabited soul; for any others they are not only useless but may actually become snares, deceiving them into a false and perilous sense of security."
--A. W. Tozer 
 
“It is not enough for us to be where God is worshipped, if we do not ourselves worship him, and that not with bodily exercise only, which profits little, but with the heart.”
--Matthew Henry
 
“God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
--John Piper
 
“The shortest route to deeper and richer worship is a clearer theology.”
--P.D. Manson
 
“The salvation of souls is a means to the glorifying of God because only saved souls can duly glorify Him.”
--C.S. Lewis
 
“The only music minister to whom the Lord will say, "Well done, thy good and faithful servant," is the one whose life proves what their lyrics are saying, and to whom music is the least important part of their life. Glorifying the only worthy One has to be a minister's most important goal!”
--Keith Green
 
“Every Christian is a priest, not offering a sacrifice for sins - since that has been done once and for all - but offering his person, praise and possessions.”
--Vance Havner
 
“The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express that same delight in God which made David dance.”
--C.S. Lewis
 
“Of all the preaching in the world, (that speaks not stark lies) I hate that preaching which tends to make the hearers laugh, or move their minds with tickling levity, and effect them as stage-plays used to do, instead of affecting them with a holy reverence of the name of God.”
--Richard Baxter
 
“We ought to see the face of God every morning before we see the face of man.”
--Dwight L. Moody
 
“When I bow to God, God stoops to me.”
--Robert Chapman
 
“As long as you notice, and have to count the steps, you are not yet dancing but only learning to dance. A good shoe is a shoe you don't notice. Good reading becomes possible when you need not consciously think about eyes, or light, or print, or spelling. The perfect church service would be the one we were almost unaware of; our attention would have been on God.”
--C.S. Lewis
 
“In contemporary society our Adversary majors in three things: noise, hurry, and crowds.”
--Richard J. Foster 
 
“He loves Thee too little who loves anything together with Thee, which he loves not for Thy sake.”
--Augustine
 
“Don't ever come to church without coming as though it were the first time, as though it could be the best time and as though it might be the last time.”
--Vance Havner
 
“Has it ever occurred to you that one hundred pianos all tuned to the same fork are automatically tuned to each other? They are of one accord by being tuned, not to each other, but to another standard to which each one must individually bow. So one hundred worshippers meeting together, each one looking away to Christ, are in heart nearer to each other than they could possibly be were they to become "unity" conscious and turn their eyes away from God to strive for closer fellowship. Social religion is perfected when private religion is purified.”
--A.W. Tozer
 
“The same church members who yell like Comanche Indians at a ball game on Saturday sit like wooden Indians in church on Sunday.”
--Vance Havner
 
“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
 
“Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't.”
--John Piper
