Not of the world

If worship is inspired by the revelation of the Lord of glory, then it will flower into a life-changing communion with the living God that will ultimately be made perfect in glory. But for the present it takes place in the world, which has always been a very religious place, though not in a truly spiritual sense. Christian worship may take place in the world, but it is not the same as the worship of the world. Most of the time it stands in stark contrast to the religious practices of the world.

Recalling the Hope of Glory, 121.
