IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH
“The hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship Him. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:23–24).
As I write this blog, some of the Church has already gathered in the eastern part of the world to worship. How we sing hymns and songs, read the Scriptures and preach the Word of God is all part of worship. Jesus was telling the woman at the well that “true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth.” In the next sentence, He makes this statement even more emphatic; they “must worship in spirit and truth.”
What makes true worship? Is it the building or how comfortable the chairs are that puts you in the attitude of true worship? Is it the music style or whether the preacher speaks well or not? There are so many factors that people say gives them a sense of worship, but none of these really have anything to do with whether we worship in spirit and truth.
Consider your heart and your life. There is a clue right in these two verses that points to the answer to what is true worship. “True worshipers will worship the Father.” This statement assumes a relationship with God that is not distant, but very near. It can only be known through Jesus Christ (John 14:6). The answer to true worship is never in things, but in a relationship.
How will you worship today?
