The first murder took place over worship. Cain was infuriated when he saw that God respected his brother Abel’s offering and worship but rejected his own. Why wasn’t his worship good enough, he reasoned (Genesis 4).
All through time there have been those who thought that their own false worship was good enough for God. In the last days the message goes to all the world that Babylon, God’s code-word for false worship in all its forms, has fallen (Revelation 14:8) and that God’s people who learn the difference between true and false worship are to come out of Babylon to avoid receiving her plagues (Revelation 18:4).
On Sabbath mornings (9am and 11:30am) for the next few weeks we will look at the contrasts between true and false worship and learn how to follow the Lord in this vital area of our lives. There is a bookmark at this link for daily personal and family worship on this topic. Here are the sermon texts and titles–
