We desperately need to worship “i need to worship because without it i can forget that i have a big god beside me and live in fear. i need to worship because without it i can forget his calling and begin to live in a spirit of self-preoccupation. i need to worship because without it i lose a sense of wonder and gratitude and plod through life with blinders on. i need worship because my natural tendency is toward self-reliance and stubborn independence.” — john ortberg
god uses worship to recenter our priorities and reestablish where our security lies. we can be taught why it’s important to praise and glorify god, but until it’s a regular part of our lives, we’ll never understand how god is using it to keep us focused.
