"Worship ought not to be construed in a utilitarian way. Its purpose is not to gain numbers nor for our church to be seen as successful. Rather, the entire reason for our worship is that God deserves it. (Worship) immerses us in the regal splendor of the King of the cosmosâ€¦provides opportunities for us to enjoy Godâ€™s presence in corporate ways that takes us out of time and into the eternal purposes of Godâ€™s kingdom. As a result, we shall be changedâ€”but not because of anything we do. God, on whom we are centered and to whom we submit, will transform us by his Revelation of himself."
