The Cross as Content of Worship

The cross grounds our worship and shapes our worship. God’s revelation of himself came in cruciform shape and so our worship of him takes on the same form. The two primary themes of worship are God our Creator and God our Redeemer. At the cross creation and redemption flow into one. We behold God making all things new through the redemption of the world. Though we await the fulness of all things new when they do become new it will simply be the full outworking of what was initiated at the cross. Eternity will echo with songs centered on the slain and risen the Lamb. The cross and the crucified God upon it stands at the heart of our worship.
