In worship God gathers his people to himself as centre: “The Lord reigns” (Ps. 93:1).
Worship is a meeting at the centre so that our lives are centred in God and not lived eccentrically.
We worship so that we live in response to and from this centre, the living God.
Failure to worship consigns us to a life of spasms and jerks, at the mercy of every advertisement, every seduction, every siren. Without worship we live manipulated and manipulating lives.
We move in either frightened panic or deluded lethargy as we are, in turn, alarmed by spectres and soothed by placebos. If there is no centre, there is no circumference. People who do not worship are swept into a vast restlessness, epidemic in the world, with no steady direction and no sustaining purpose.
