“Should I care?” Sermon Series 1st January – 19th February 2023

Worship and spirituality are the essence of Christian life. After their return from exile from Babylon to Jerusalem, the Israelites rebuilt the temple and the city, and life soon settled down into a routine pattern of worship and religious formalities. But old habits die hard. Hidden under their superficial worship and formalities lies deep issues of doubts, apathy, negligence, arrogance and indulgence. What about us? Some of us might have been a Christian for quite some time, but have we likewise lost our zeal for the Lord, for his Word and his work? Have we slowly slipped into the slippery slope of spiritual superficiality and apathy? Has our faith gradually moved away from the center to the peripheries of life? Now is the time to reflect, rethink, reset, refocus and rebuild our spiritual and worship life.
