• “A Christian woman’s true freedom lies on the other side of a very small gate—humble obedience—but that gate leads out into a largeness of life undreamed of by the liberators of the world, to a place where the God-given differentiation between the sexes is not obfuscated but celebrated, where our inequalities are seen as essential to the image of God, for it is in male and female, in male as male and female as female, not as two identical and interchangeable halves, that the image is manifested.” – Elisabeth Elliot

Responding in Wonder by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 01/12/12

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: What exactly is worship?

“Worship actually is an activity or a structured event.”

“Worship to me is a state of mind.”

“Probably certain types of music are more worshipful than other types of music.”

Nancy: Here’s my definition of worship: It’s our response to God’s revelation of Himself. In other words, when God shows us His person, His provision, and His power; it’s only fitting for us to respond with awe, wonder, and gratitude.

In Exodus 14 we read that God dramatically parted the Red Sea so the Israelites could be saved from the Egyptian army. God’s people responded in worship, singing:

The LORD is my strength and my song. . . .
He is my God, and I will praise Him.

Worship goes beyond singing songs during a set time on Sunday morning. Each of us can respond to God with awe and wonder every day as He displays His power.

  • “How very narrow is the gate that leads to a life in God! (Mt 7:14) How little one must be to pass through it, it being nothing else but death to self! But when we have passed through it, what enlargement do we find! David said, ‘He brought me forth also in a large place’ (Ps. 18:19). And it was through humiliation and abasement that he was brought there.” – from Madame Guyon’s autobiography Ch. 22

But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. — Acts 20:24 (NKJV)
