Old Versus New

In the past few months we have looked into the meaning of worship. We have unwrapped truths and untruths about the praise of our Savior and what that should look like in our lives. This month I want to talk about a difficult subject when it comes to worship. I want to talk about personal preferences and how they get in the way of honest worship to our Lord.
