The Meaninglessness of Mechanical Worship

Ecclesiastes 5:1  (ID: 1335)

Does what we do on Saturday night affect our worship on Sunday morning? According to the writer of Ecclesiastes, it does. Alistair Begg explains that we should guard our steps and prepare our hearts before we worship. If we are not careful, worship can become a meaningless routine in which we sing hymns and read Scripture without truly praising the Lord.


Fear God

1Guard your steps when you go to the house of God. To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil.
