Underhill: the worshipful attitude

Sunday, August 22, 2021
    He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”
    —Revelation 14:7 (NIV)
    As the genuine religious impulse becomes dominant, adoration more and more takes charge. “I come to seek God because I need Him,” may be an adequate formula for prayer. “I come to adore His splendour, and fling myself and all that I have at His feet,” is the only possible formula for worship.
    ... Evelyn Underhill (1875-1941), Worship, London: Nisbet & Co., Ltd., 1951, p. 9 (see the book)
    See also Rev. 14:7; Ezra 9:5; Hos. 6:6; John 4:23-24
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, by myself, I have nothing; with You, I have everything.
