Worship: The Goal of the Church

I love this quote from John Piper in his book "Let the Nations Be Glad". 

"Missions is not the ultimate goal of the Church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever." 

If worship is the ultimate goal of the church, it ought also to be the greatest goal of my life. Does the way I live and love and work lead display worship and cause others to glory in Christ? Not as I would like. Praying always for more...
