In the 2018 Leadership Institute seminar The Beauty of Reformed Worship, Speaker Zach Hopkins explained the biblical basis of worship as our response to God’s covenant with mankind.
“Christian worship is covenental worship,” Hopkins said. “We are gathered together because of God’s gracious condescension toward us. We would have no knowledge of God—and no participation with Him in any way—apart from his willing condescension toward us. That’s ‘covenant.’”
Hopkins serves as Pastor of Edgington Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Taylor Ridge, Ill.
