The Cross as Shape of Worship

Worship is not confined to a time, place, or event. New Covenant worship encompasses the whole of our existence. All of life is to be understood under the rubric of worship. The New Testament views our lives as one incessant sacrificial offering to God. Since the fall, sacrifice has always been central to worship. Worship that is pleasing to God is cross-shaped. In other words, worship is a lifestyle of sacrifice for the good of one’s neighbor to the glory of God. A cruciform existence is synonymous with a life of worship.
