The Eucharist As An Offering and Submittal

He will speak peace to his people, to his saints, to those who turn to him in their hearts. Psalm 85:8

The life of prayer and worship does not aim first of all at comforting or the perfecting of the individual soul–as we often think it does and should. The aim of all worship, and of the Eucharist in particular, is the transformation of the whole of life: bringing everything under the rule of God; offering all we have and are to the purpose of God. This is the end for which we have been made. Thus our worship at the Eucharist is both an offering to God, and a token of the offering of our life to the doing of His Will.
