“Fuel in the furnace of worship” by Greg Gilbert

“An emaciated gospel leads to emaciated worship. It lowers our eyes from God to self and cheapens what God has accomplished for us in Christ. The biblical gospel, by contrast, is like fuel in the furnace of worship.

The more you understand about it, believe it, and rely on it, the more you adore God both for who He is and for what He has done for us in Christ. ‘Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God!’ Paul cried (Rom. 11:33), and it was because his heart was full of the gospel.”

–Greg Gilbert, What is the Gospel? (Wheaton, IL: Crossway, 2010), 20-21.
