John 4:22, Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
We all know the scripture John 4:24, God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
We are having wonderful worship services and some are truly worshiping God in spirit but are we worshiping God in truth.
Are we really worshiping God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH when we’re having our worship services?
Are we truly worshiping God if we’re not worshiping God in SPIRIT and in TRUTH?
Let’s look at the scripture meaning of worship, spirit and truth, this will provide us with clarification for our worship to be complete.
Since the scripture tells us that WE MUST worship God in spirit and in truth, are we truly honoring God by our worship.
Let’s break down this scripture to obtain TRUTH
John 4:23 But the hour (point of time, definite time) cometh, and now is, when the true (sincere, genuine, real) worshipers shall worship (to kiss the hand, to fall upon the knees and touch the ground with the forehead as an expression of profound reverence, to prostrate) the Father in spirit (the power by which the human being feels, thinks, decides, the Holy Spirit) and in truth: (what is true in things appertaining to God and the duties of man, moral and religious truth, in reality, in fact) for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
BREAKDOWN: The definite time has comes and now is when the genuine worshipers shall fall to their knees, lay prostrate in profound reverence to the Father is the power of the Holy Spirit and in true things pertaining to God: for the Father seek such to worship him.
Now that the scripture has been broken down, can we take a minute here to reflect on our lives? Can we look into the mirror and say, “I’m worshiping God in spirit and in truth?”
The truth is we have all fallen short in worshiping the true and living God. Are you kneeling down, laying prostrate are the words that we’re speaking worshiping God in truth or are your words what others tell you to say.
GOD IS LOOKING FOR TRUE WORSHIPERS!
