To say it a little differently, worship is declaring, with our lips and lives, that God is more important than anything else to us, that he is our deepest desire, that his inherent worth is beyond everything else we hold dear.

So it isn’t surprising that the desire for instant gratification can even creep into our study of the Bible. We approach our “time in the Word” like the drive-through at McDonald’s: “I’ve only got a few minutes. Give me something quick and easy to fill me up.”

"Our world is dripping with God’s presence and calling us to worship him alone (Ps 97:4-6). But our eyes are dim and our understanding is darkened. Eternity is lost in the immediacy of our world. We hardly have patience to wait for someone to make our latte, let alone to set our minds on Christ, who sits at the right hand of God (Col 3:1-2). What does it look like to grasp God’s presence and his call for our growth in grace? What does it look like to be God’s “fellow workers” (1 Cor 3:9) in the Christian life? What does it mean to proclaim, “Without you I can do nothing” (see Jn 15:5)?"
