• (07) Jeroboam: Worship of Convenience

  • Jun 1, 2006

This video lesson was shot on location in Dan Nature Park in Israel.

God's prescribed manner of worship was inconvenient. Today the character of worship in America is convenience. If I can't find a parking space right in front of the church, I'll probably go someplace else. That's not God's way of worship. Jeroboam lowered God's standards. He directly disobeyed the rules God had set down for worship. There was a Biblical illiteracy in Israel just as there is today in America. Christ was God's perfect sacrifice. God's worship is centered on Jesus and his payment for our sins. God no longer sees our sins--only Christ's sacrifice.

Hebrews 9:11-15, 23-28; 2 Corinthians 5:21; 1 Kings 12
