23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
John 4:23-24 | NIV
The supernatural being conceived as the perfect and omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe.
How do you distinguish between : True vs. False Worshippers?
There is a qualification:
1. In spirit – The part of a human associated with the mind, will, and feelings. A pervasive or essential attitude, quality, or principle. An attitude marked by enthusiasm, energy, or courage. Temperament or disposition. From the heart, the inner self. The vital principle or animating force within living things. So we need to worship God in the right spirit. It’s like hanging out with someone. Is it a pleasant or bad experience? We also need God’s Spirit to worship through him. What is your attitude about seeking God? Is it positive? How serious are you about it? What priority does it fill in your life?
2. In truth – The quality of being true, genuine, actual, or factual. Something that is true as opposed to false. The Bible is truth. How well do you know the truth? Do you know God’s saving plan, he’s will for your life?
Amazing that God seeks us out. He wants a relationship with us.
Do you worship God in spirit and truth?
