John Piper on “getting” in worship

Worship is nothing less than obedience to the command of God, “Delight yourself in the Lord” (Psalm 37:4)… The true diagnosis of weak worship is not that our people are coming to get and not to give… People ought to come starved for God. They ought to come saying, “As the deer pants for the water brooks, so my soul pants for You, O God (Psalm 42:1). God is profoundly honored when people know that they will die of hunger and thirst unless they have God. And it is my job as a preacher to spread a banquet for them.
