Worship is the submission of all our nature to God.
It is the quickening of conscience by His Holiness;
the nourishing of mind with His truth;
the purifying of imagination by His beauty;
the opening of the heart to His love;
the surrender of will to His purpose—
and all of this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.
