A DEFINITION OF WORSHIP
"Worship is the expression of the Christian believer's relationship with God. However that relationship is very complex, since God is at one and the same time our Creator, Redeemer (through Jesus Christ), Sustainer, Indweller (by the Holy Spirit), Friend, and Judge. It helps to remember that we approach God individually as a created one, a redeemed one, a sustained one, an indwelt one, a befriended one, and a judged one."
-Don Hustad, in Jubilate II: Church Music in Worship and Renewal, Chapter 5, "The Nature of Christian Worship in Relation to Its Musical Expression," Hope Publishing Co., 1993.
