Edward Burrough on Worship

The worship of God in itself is this. It is a walking with God, and a living with him in converse and fellowship therein, and to do the truth, and seek the truth: this is the true worship of God, where the mind is girded with the spirit of truth, and the presence of the Lord felt at all time, and his fear in the heart of people and his counsel stood in, and his covenant felt, which unites to the Lord in spirit, this is the true worship of God; and it is without respect of time or things.

Burrough was an early Quaker minister.
