But “belief” is not “worship,” and so Volf carefully spells out the meaning of “worship”: and here he departs from the populist mode of thinking, which sees worship as raising hands in a “worship” service and expands the word to its biblical proportions: it is how we live. What we worship and how we worship tell us who our God is. I totally agree with him here: our worship reveals our God.
This is huge. In our culture of intellectual assent to a set of doctrines, or “feel-good” music sessions (commonly called worship!), we need to recapture the essence of worship. Someone may say they worship Jesus, but what does their life show? What does my life show? If it doesn't reflect Jesus, then something is wrong!
