As we were leaving Beaumont, Texas, we saw a large sign along the highway calling upon people to acknowledge God. "Go and worship God in the church of your own choice," we read. We pulled to a stop in front of a red light. Another car drew alongside us. A child's voice read the sign and said, "Daddy, what does worship mean?" The father replied, "It means to go to church and listen to the preacher preach." Could there be a more horrible definition? Worship - three or four hundred years ago it was pronounced worth-ship - means the acknowledgment of the worth that is in our God.
Worship in heaven is described in terms of God's angels and sons falling before Him, saying, "Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever" (REVELATION 7:12).
1. Is worship then in Dr. Barnhouse’s definition man-centered or Christ-centered.
2. If worship is focused on Christ, hence “glory, and wisdom” does the form in which we worship matter?
