Defining Worship 15

Worship is the celebration of being in covenant fellowship with a sovereign and holy Lord God, by means of the expressed commitment of trust and obedience of the covenantal responsibilities, the spontaneous praise and adoration of His Person and work, the memorial reenactment of entering into covenant through sacrificial atonement, with the confident anticipation of the fulfillment of His covenant promises.

—Allen P. Ross, Recovering the Hope of Glory: Biblical Worship from the Garden to the New Creation, 67-68
