Worship (Matt 12:1-8)

Authentic worship involves our lowly and broken human heart bowing down before the transcendence and mercy of God. To do this the Church gives us aids such as words, bread, wine, water, oil, etc., to worship God in the manner he has chosen best. These aids are important and necessary. Yet ultimately it is the human heart that gives God worship. To not engage our hearts in worship is to fail to give God what he ultimately desires. Hence, real authentic worship is a way of life.
