Defining Worship 36

Worship, by definition, is where the creature recognizes that he or she is a creature and God alone is the Creator. Worship is an act of submission, of placing oneself under the deity. This, of course, also implies a denial of one’s own divinity, a denial that one is lord over one’s own life.

—Ben Witherington, A Vision of Kingdom Worship, 36
