Have you ever wondered why Cain's sacrifice to God was rejected while Abel's was accepted? Cain gave a sacrifice that was akin to fellowship while Abel gave one related to a sin offering. Intimacy with God requires that we acknowledge and confess our sins before we have fellowship with Him.
But when people come to church we expect them to have an intimate relationship with God when we invite them to worship intimately without addressing the issue of sin. How can we ever worship a holy God when we ignore our own unholiness? What are the steps we need to take so that we can have intimate worship? These are the questions this study answers.
The Bible says that God watches the proud from afar. The Bible says that God hates haughty eyes. Pride will keep us from many things God has for us. Pride will make us proud of going through the motions rather than truly worshiping.
