Quote to Consider:
Thomas Watson on "Thy will be done": "To mix
anything of our own devising in God’s worship, is to go beside, yea,
contrary to the pattern. His worship is the apple of his eye, that
which he is the most tender of; and there is nothing he has more
showed his displeasure against than corrupting his worship. How
severely did he punish Nadab and Abihu for offering up strange fire,
that is, such fire as God has not sanctified on the altar! Lev. 10:2.
Whatever is not divinely appointed is offering up strange fire. There
is in many a strange itch after superstition: they love a gaudy
religion, and are more for the pomp of worship than the purity; which
cannot be pleasing to God. As if God were not wise enough to appoint
the manner how he will be served, man will be so bold as to prescribe
for him. To thrust human inventions into sacred things is doing our
will, not God’s; and he will say ‘Who hath required this at your
hand?’ Isa. 1:12. We do God’s will as it is done in heaven when we do
it regularly, when we reverence his institutions, and the mode of
worship, which have the stamp of divine authority upon them." (The
Lord’s Prayer, p. 157).
