Over at theresurgence.com, Mark Driscoll is posting a series on spiritual disciplines. His latest is on worship. It's a quick read, in which he defines several important terms, such as glory, sacrifice, false worship, idolatry, Trinitarian worship, Jesus the perfect worshiper, and unceasing worship. Here is what he says about unceasing worship:

Jesus’ life destroys any notion that worship is a sacred thing we do at a special time and special place. All of life is to be lived as ceaseless worship; cutting our grass and cleaning our dishes are as sacred and God-glorifying as raising our hands in church. Jesus Himself modeled this: He spent roughly 90 percent of His earthly life doing chores as a boy and working a carpentry job as a man. Paul sums up the life of unceasing worship best in 1 Corinthians 10:31, “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

And while we're on the subject of Mark Driscoll, his new book, Vintage Church, co-authored with Gerry Breshears, has just been released. I greatly respect Driscoll's ecclesiology as well as his wit in writing. This is sure to be a doozy. Here are the chapter titles:

1. What Is the Christian Life?
2. What Is a Christian Church?
3. Who Is Supposed to Lead a Church?
4. Why Is Preaching Important?
5. What Are Baptism and Communion?

10. What Is a Multi-Campus Church?
11. How Can a Church Utilize Technology?
12. How Could the Church Help Transform the World?
