Defining Worship 18

Worship is the natural expression of faith.

Worship is essentially a dialogical activity in which we stand over against God even when we draw near to Him, distinguishing His transcendent nature from ourselves, while relating ourselves appropriately to His holiness and majesty and responding thankfully to the mercy He extends towards us.

—Thomas F. Torrance, “The Word of God and the Response of Man” in God and Rationality, 156, 157
