I. Worship Genuinely

Question: What is worship? How is it displayed / expressed?

  3. Exercise of corporate fellowship.

I show up to church on time why?

  1. I’m responsible 
  2. God
  3. Church
  4. Others
  5. i’m Respectful

Transition:

II. Read (Be in the Word) Consistently

  1. Foundation
  2. Devotional – mindful in all circumstances
