Making Worship Out of Rebels

Thanks to Ron Man’s Worship Notes for this quote on worship by A.W. Tozer.

“Why did Christ come? Why was He conceived? Why was He born? Why was He crucified? Why did He rise again? Why is He now at the right hand of the Father?

The answer to all these questions is, ‘In order that He might make worshipers out
of rebels; in order that He might restore us again to the place of worship we knew when we were first created.’ Now because we were created to worship, worship is the normal employment of moral beings. It’s the normal employment, not something stuck on or added, like listening to a concert or admiring flowers. It is something that is built into human nature.”

(A. W. Tozer, “O Worship the King”)
