"Worship is the human response to the self-revelation of the triune God, which involves: (1) divine initiation in which God graciously reveals himself, his purposes, and will; (2) a spiritual and personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ enabled by the ministry of the Holy Spirit; and (3) a response by the worshiper of joyful adoration, reverence, humility, submission, and obedience.

My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.
On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
All other ground is sinking sand.
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne. … See MoreSee Less

His wounds have paid my ransom” … See MoreSee Less

Quote on worship: John R.W. Stott
"This is worship. It is to seek to give to God the glory which is due to his name. Indeed, the best biblical definition of worship I know is to ‘glory in his holy name’ (Psalm 105:3), that is, to revel in the unique wonder of who he is and has revealed himself to be. If worship is right because God is worthy of it, it is also the best of all antidotes to our own self-centeredness, the most effective way to ‘disinfect us of egotism,’ as one writer put it long ago. In true worship we turn the searchlight of our mind and heart upon God and temporarily forget about our troublesome and usually intrusive selves. We marvel at the beauties and intricacies of God’s creation. We ‘survey the wondrous cross on which the Prince of glory died.’ We are taken up with God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus taught us to do this in the Lord’s Prayer, whose first three sentences focus not on our needs but on his glory, on the honoring of his name, the spread of his kingdom and the doing of his will. Because we are normally so turned in on ourselves, we will not find this easy. But we have to persevere, since nothing is more right or more important." … See MoreSee Less
