Although this sermon was delivered back in 1891, it is more than relevant today. Yes, Solomon was certainly correct and stated an incontrovertible truth by the Spirit of God: "The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (Eccl. 1:9) The author, Archibald G. Brown who sometimes substituted for Charles Spurgeon at the Metropolitan Tabernacle, begins his sermon thusly:

We shall only dwell on the one word “worship”. I can almost imagine that I hear someone saying, “Only one word? Will you be able, preacher, to fill up the allotted time from so small a text?” True, it is only one word, but then it is such a word that we need have no fear of exhausting its teaching, did we preach until midnight. The only dread we have is lest the greatness of the word should altogether overwhelm us, for an ocean depth lies in this single word.

“Worship”. Seven letters spell it, but seven millenniums will never exhaust its meaning. “Worship”. Oh, it is a sanctuary word. As the tabernacle of old among the tents of Israel, so is this word “worship” in earth’s vocabulary. It will be a delightful occupation if, this morning, we can walk round about it; but yet shall we not be satisfied, for, as the tabernacle of old could never be comprehended by an outside view, there being but the badger skin covering to be seen, so merely walking round about the word “worship” will never discover to us all its exquisite loveliness. To understand worship you must worship. To enter into its meaning you must enter into its reality May the Spirit of truth promised of our Lord, the Spirit which guides into all the truth, guide us into the truth concerning worship this morning.
