In his book A Body of Practical
Divinity, John Gill presents his beliefs on the worship of God. The
first section of his text features advice to Christians participating in
internal worship. According to Gill, the worshippers should experience
thankfulness, humility, and self-denial as they commune with God. Next,
Gill discusses the nature of public worship in the church and the
special worship duties that belong to pastors, deacons, and
church-members. Finally, Gill reviews the duties shared by individuals
who participate in private worship. He warns us that the Triune God must
remain the sole object of human worship. Gill's practical wisdom is
useful for all Christians who aim to ensure that the act of worship is
always glorifying to God.
