What is worship?

"Likewise, we do not receive forgiveness of sins because of love for God, even though this must follow. 31 [152] Besides, this way of speaking is well known. At times we use a word for something and we use the same word for the cause and effects of that thing (synecdoche). For example, in Luke 7:47, Christ says, “Her sins, which are many, are forgiven—for she loved much.” Christ Himself interprets this when He adds, “Your faith has saved you” [7:50]. Christ did not mean that the woman had merited forgiveness of sins by that work of love. 32 [153] That is why He adds, “Your faith has saved you.” But faith is that which freely obtains God’s mercy because of God’s Word. If anyone denies that this is faith, he does not understand at all what faith is. 33 [154] The story in this passage shows what Christ calls “love.” The woman came with the opinion that forgiveness of sins should be sought in Christ. This worship is the highest worship of Christ. She could think nothing greater about Christ. To seek forgiveness of sins from Him was truly to acknowledge the Messiah. To think of Christ this way, to worship Him this way, to embrace Him this way, is truly to believe."
-Defense of the Augsburg Confession - Article 5

In other words, the truest and highest worship of God is to receive forgiveness. This is what the church exists for!
