Worship Defined and Applied to God Revealed in the Bible

Dr. Mohler offers a definition of worship and a premise necessary to worship God "in spirit and in truth" (John 4:24):

Worship is the people of God gathering together to confess his worthiness, his worth-ship." How can we do that if we do not make clear who God is? Our very pattern of worship must testify to the character of God.

There is a polarity between the objective and the subjective. There is the subjective in worship. But what Scripture makes clear is that the subjective experience of worship must be predicated on the objective truth of the true and living God, and on an experience of the God who has revealed Himself in Scripture.

"God is a Spirit; and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
- Jesus Christ
