God is not common; therefore we must not approach Him in common ways–those related to moral performances, personal preferences, or cultural assumptions. So how can we approach God?
Listen to this sermon by Pastor Andrew Arthur to see how 1 Samuel 5 instructs us to listen to how God, Himself, instructs us to come and stand in His holy presence. May you leave our time of worship through study thankful that, in Christ, God has provided the way for you to approach Him AND to enjoy being in His presence!
