Our worship is right, when it doth proclaim to all that shall observe us or we that observe ourselves, that there is a great, an infinite, eternal power, which sits at the upper end of causes, and governeth all according to His own pleasure. Alas! the wor­ship of many is flat atheism, they say in their hearts, either there is no God, or believe there is no God. Therefore, do you worship him as becomes such a glorious being? Is His mercy seen in your faith and confidence? His majesty, in your humility and reverence? His goodness, in your soul’s rejoicing? His greatness and justice, in your trembling before His throne? The worship must be like the worshipped, it must have His stamp up­on it.
