Humility - at the heart of worship

I found this in my e-mail this morning. I hope you will take a moment not just to read it, but to meditate upon it.

“Christian exultation in God begins with the shamefaced recognition that we have no claim on him at all, continues with wondering worship that while we were still sinners and enemies Christ died for us, and ends with the humble confidence that he will complete the work he has begun. So to exult in God is to rejoice not in our privileges but in his mercies, not in our possession of him but in his of us.”

John Stott, The Message of Romans (Downers Grove, Ill: InterVarsity Press, 1994), 147-48
