Guard your steps! Words, Worth, and Worship

After you watch this video, consider how you prepare for Sunday morning worship. The Preacher’s advice in Ecclesiastes 5:1-7 is clear and straightforward.

  1. Think before you Worship: prepare your heart. Eccl. 5:1  To draw near to listen is better than to offer the sacrifice of fools, for they do not know that they are doing evil.
  2. Wait before you Worship: thoughtfully participate. Don’t rush into worship without a prepared a ready heart, focused for worship.
  3. Do as you Worship: sincerely apply what you have learned. Don’t come to worship and learn and leave without applying what you have learned. If you make a commitment to God, fulfill it.
  4. Fear who you Worship: Eccl. 5:7 For when dreams increase and words grow many, there is vanity; but God is the one you must fear.
