Gospel-centered worship

Christ-centered worship is not just talking or singing about Jesus a lot. Christ-centered worship reflects the contours of the gospel.

In the individual life of a believer, the gospel progresses through recognition of the greatness and goodness of God, the acknowledgment of our sin and need of grace, assurance of God’s forgiveness through Christ, thankful acknowledgment of God’s blessing, desire for greater knowledge of him through his Word, grateful obedience in response to his grace, and a life devoted to his purposes with assurance of his blessing.

РBryan Chappell, president of Covenant Theological Seminary, interviewed by Collin Hansen of Christianity Today about his book  Christ Centered Worship:  Letting the Gospel Shape Our Practice (Baker, 2009).
