Westminster Larger Catechism

"The duties required in the first commandment ["You shall have no other gods before Me."] are, the knowing and acknowledging of God to be the only true God, and our God; and to worship and glorify Him accordingly, by thinking, meditating, remembering, highly esteeming, honoring, adoring, choosing, loving, desiring, fearing of Him; believing Him; trusting, hoping, delighting, rejoicing in Him; being zealous for Him; calling upon Him, giving all praise and thanks, and yielding all obedience and submission to Him with the whole man; being careful in all things to please Him, and sorrowful when in anything He is offended; walking humbly with Him."

That is the prescription for a well-lived life; joy and dedication bring large rewards.

That seems to sum up our duty to God very well. I particularly enjoy the delighting, rejoicing, praising and thanksgiving. ec
