Kendrick on Where Worship Begins

Today's Worship Quote is from songwriter Graham Kendrick.

Everybody worships. Whether it is a hero, possessions, success, pleasure, a political cause, a carved idol or oneself, the way we live and behave makes evident the things we love and give ourselves to. It is in our very nature to worship, and that inner drive is God-given; the disaster is that as part of a fallen race, we have replaced the object of our worship. To be converted to faith in Jesus Christ is to return to the worship of the true God, and to dethrone all rivals to his authority.

- Graham Kendrick, Worship (Kingsway Publications, 1984), 24.


May we continue to turn our God-given worshiping nature toward the only worthy object. The source becomes the goal.

Have a great week!
