Worship as Response

Our worship is our answer to God who has first addressed us. . . . Man worships the God who has made Himself known, and that worship is to be governed, both in fact and in form, by this revelation. We “praise His holy Name”—that is, we worship Him in His self-revelation. If God had not revealed Himself, we could not praise Him.

—William Nicholls, Jacob’s Ladder: The Meaning of Worship, 37
