From the blog this week: ‘The Ten Commandments’- A Book Review

How to Worship God in Vain

“You can say things. You can go to worship services. You can raise your hands, but you cannot hallow his name because your heart is in another place. ‘Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also’ (Matthew 6:21).”
