.” 21 Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 But 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. 24 God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.”
John 4:20-24 (ESV)
We are all called to worship in Spirit and truth do we even understand what that means as Christians today? As Jesus shared with the Samaritan woman a truth that we need to understand; true worship is only found in a relationship with God through His spirit and understanding the truth found in His word. The place that we go to worship is never as important as the mind and attitude that we worship in. We can attend church anywhere. The mega church down the road or the small church that only has ten people there this morning; but the true worshipers will worship in spirit and truth. In doing this God will be present and in His presence all things are possible.
Do you know what it looks like to worship God in accordance to His Spirit and truth? An example is found in Nehemiah:
5 And Ezra opened the book in the sight of all the people, for he was above all the people, and as he opened it all the people stood. 6 And Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God, and all the people answered, “Amen, Amen,” lifting up their hands. And they bowed their heads and worshiped the LORD with their faces to the ground.
Nehemiah 8:5-6 (ESV)
When the God’s truth is spoken God’s spirit will be present and the truth of His word will bring change in the lives of those who hear and accept it. We are to worship God with all we have.We are called to give Him our best in everything and that includes our worship. If we will worship Him with abandon it will bring change to our situation. In that change we should worship Him even more we each have so much to be thankful for. I challenge you to apply God’s word to your life and walk in the light of It.
