Hearing What God Says

Every time we worship our minds are informed, our memories refreshed with the judgments of God, we are familiarized with what God says, what He has decided, the ways He is working out our salvation. There is simply no place where these can be done as well as in worship. . . . We want to hear what God says and what He says to us: worship is the place where our attention is centered on these personal and decisive words of God.

—Eugene Peterson, A Long Obedience in the Same Direction, 55
