Worship is the submission of all our nature to God.
It is the quickening of conscience by His holiness;
the nourishment of mind with His truth;
the purifying of imagination by His beauty;
the opening of the heart to His love;
the surrender of will to His purpose--
and of all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless
emotion of which our nature is capable.
William Temple. Readings in St. John's Gospel
cited by Kenneth Bailey in Jesus through Middle Eastern Eyes: Cultural Studies in the Gospels.
