Christian worship is an integral part of the Christian life. Martin Luther is quoted to have said that man was created to worship God.
One of the values of the church family I am part of is intimate worship. However, I am fully aware that we do not have a monopoly on the concept of worship.
That is why I wanted to give you some of my favorite Christian worship quotes. I hope that they will help you expand your horizons on what is worship and why we worship God.

16 Powerful Worship Quotes
I never knew how to worship until I knew how to love. – Henry Ward Beecher
“When I worship, I would rather my heart be without words than my words be without heart.” – Lamar Boschman
Worship is giving God the best that He has given you. Be careful what you do with the best you have. Whenever you get a blessing from God, give it back to Him as a love gift. Take time to meditate before God and offer the blessing back to Him in a deliberate act of worship. If you hoard a thing for yourself, it will turn into spiritual dry rot, as the manna did when it was hoarded. God will never let you hold a spiritual thing for yourself; it has to be given back to Him that He may make it a blessing to others. – Oswald Chambers
“As worship begins in holy expectancy, it ends in holy obedience. Holy obedience saves worship from becoming an opiate, an escape from the pressing needs of modern life.” – Richard Foster
The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service. – Billy Graham
If your heart takes more pleasure in reading novels, or watching TV, or going to the movies, or talking to friends, rather than just sitting alone with God and embracing Him, sharing His cares and His burdens, weeping and rejoicing with Him, then how are you going to handle forever and ever in His presence? You’d be bored to tears in heaven, if you’re not ecstatic about God now! – Keith Green
“Worship changes the worshiper into the image of the One worshiped” – Jack Hayford
“The whole person, with all his senses, with both mind and body, needs to be involved in genuine worship.” – Jerry Kerns

“The most valuable thing the Psalms do for me is to express the same delight in God which made David dance.” – C.S. Lewis
“Without worship, we go about miserable.” – A. W. Tozer
Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will approve here, and reward you when he cometh in the clouds of heaven. – John Wesley
“When God’s people begin to praise and worship Him using the Biblical methods He gives, the Power of His presence comes among His people in an even greater measure.” – Graham Truscott
To gather with God’s people in united adoration of the Father is as necessary to the Christian life as prayer. – Martin Luther
