Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the voice of the LORD? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams” (1 Samuel 15:22). ” If we read the books of the Old Testament prophets, over and over again you hear them bemoan the fact that the people of Israel profess much when it comes to beautiful services of worship and the precise execution of the various ceremonies but perform little with regards to their daily walk with God and His Law (Isaiah 1:11-17; Amos 5:21-24; Micah 6:6-8; Zechariah 7:5-10, amongst others).

The verse above draws attention to the fact that God is “Yahweh”; some Bible translations also render the name “Jehovah” here12. These names mean “I am the LORD”, or 11 Sermon, delivered on August 16, 1998 Please note that we don’t refer to the Bible of the so-called “Jehovah’s witnesses”.
