Implications of the Inward Essence of Worship
The implications of the inward essence of worship focus on centering our corporate worship on connecting with God and experiencing joy as a result. When our whole life is consumed with pursuing satisfaction in God, everything we do highlights the value and worth of God. Which simply means that everything becomes worship.
1. The pursuit of joy in God is not optional. It is our highest duty
2. Worship becomes radically God-centered
3. It protects the primacy of worship by forcing us to come to terms with the fact that worship is an end in itself
4. This accounts for why Paul makes all of life an expression of worship
