Worship is about God: God’s wonder, mystery, and majesty; his wonderful story of rescuing his creatures and creation. The great majority of [contemporary worship] choruses, however, are about me. How much I love God and want to serve him, and lift him up. The focus seems to be on self-generated worship. God is made the object of my affection, and worship is measured by how strongly I am able to feel this gratitude and express it to God.

-Robert E. Webber, Ancient-Future Worship: Proclaiming and Enacting God’s Narrative
(Grand Rapids, MI: Baker Books, 2008), 84.
