Don Williams on Worship as Our Destiny
Part of the series: Words to Weigh
Posted for February, 15, 2007

"Kingdom life begins in worship and ends in worship. Our destiny is to become eternal worshipers of the Triune God. When many hear this, they are turned off. They say, "I don't want to play a harp, sit on a cloud, or sing in a choir forever." They simply project their bad church experiences into their eternal future. But, as we have seen, worship, at its heart, is submission and surrender to the living God. It confesses, "Jesus Christ, is Lord, to the glory of God the Father" (Phil 2:11). True worshipers pray, "Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven." But one day this petition will turn to praise: "Your kingdom has come. Your will is done, right here, right now, on our transformed earth, throughout our transformed universe, as well as in the highest heaven." (p. 230)

Rick Warren on Preaching and on the Church's Choice
Part of the series: Words to Weigh

"When you're preaching and teaching the good news, you walk a very fine line where you're taking the world of the Bible and the world of today, and you're building a bridge between those [worlds]," he explained. "Now, it's easy to be biblical if you don't care about being relevant. . . . And it's easy to be relevant if you don't care about being biblical. I happen to want to be both."

"Every church has to make the decision. . . . Is it going to live for itself, or is it going to live for the world that Jesus died for?"

Rick Warren
Quoted in a story on ABC News Nightline
