The TRUE WORSHIPERS
Someone asked Jesus Christ where to worship. We read in John 4:23 Jesus said: “But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
God is SPIRIT. He is not limited to space or location. God is everywhere and He knows all things and He gives His Spirit, the Holy Spirit, in those who are born again and who seek to obey Him, to do His will.
They do not worship in a special place, like a church or on special times or on special days only, like on a Sunday. They worship Him all the time. They live their lives to please Him.
Many people go to church on a Sunday, they go to praise and worship but afterwards they give no thought to Jesus Christ.
God seeks people who worship Him in SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH all the time, people whose mind is always on Jesus, always on seeking, His will, people who are filled with the Holy Spirit and who follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit, people who are lead by the Holy Spirit and the Holy Spirit prays with them and in them and guides them into what to pray and how to live, how to serve Him. They worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. Those are the TRUE WORSHIPERS, the ones that God seeks.
If we are not TRUE WORSHIPERS we are only fooling ourselves and we are not pleasing to Jesus Christ.
Are we TRUE WORSHIPERS or are we only occasional worshipers? We have to worship, follow and obey Him, live our lives to please Him all the time, every day, deny ourselves, pick up our cross follow Him, worship Him in SPIRIT and in TRUTH.
Are we TRUE WORSHIPERS that are pleasing to God?
May Jesus bless you.
