Christmas is for Worship: Created to Worship

With Christmas falling on Sunday, this week’s “Weekends are for Worship” is a repost of one of the most popular posts this year. A quote from Andrew Murray: Created to Worship. Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!

To worship is man’s highest glory. He was created for fellowship with God: of that fellowship worship is the sublimest expression. All the exercises of the religious life meditation and prayer, love and faith, surrender and obedience,all culminate in worship. Recognising what God is in His holiness, His glory, and His love, realizing what I am as a sinful creature, and as the Father’s redeemed child, in worship I gather up my whole being and present myself to my God, to offer Him the adoration and the glory which is His due. The truest and fullest and nearest approach to God is worship. Every sentiment and every service of the religious life is included in it: to worship is man’s highest destiny, because in it God is all.

Andrew Murray, The Spirit of Christ
