Worship Leads the Way

Who we worship and how we worship will direct our entire culture. Our worship will regulate our lives in relation to alcohol, anger, authority, business, benevolence, children, conflicts, discipline, friendship, future plans, health, hard work, laziness, lying, marriage, manners, money, parents, prayer, pride, priorities, serving, speaking, and work, to name a few aspects of life that we all experience.

All of these aspects I just listed are discussed in the book of Proverbs, where we find the wisdom to work out our worship into all of life. Proverbs takes the worship of the one true God and puts it on the kitchen table. There is no escaping its call to walk in the way of life. And it all starts with...

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.

We will press on to know the Lord together this Lord's Day as we transition from Leviticus to Proverbs in our series of sermons "Worship, Wisdom, and Work." See you there.
