The Worship Factor

 

Whether we acknowledge it or not, humans were created for one sole purpose; to worship and honor God while on this earth and for all eternity.  True worship must come from the heart. It is both a humble and reverent expression of our love, adoration and loyalty to God for all that He is and all that He has provided us.

 

Jesus told the woman at the well in John 4:23-24, "The hour is coming, and now is, when true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth."  It doesn’t say we can worship God anyway we want, but we "must worship Him in spirit and in truth".  The word "must" makes it absolute.  There is no other way we can worship God and be acceptable to Him. Unless there’s a real passion and love for God, there is no worship in spirit.  Jesus also said to the woman at the well, "Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father."' In other words, it is not the location that makes an act of worship authentic. Worship is not merely an external act that you can accomplish by going to a place.  Together the words "spirit and truth" mean that real worship comes from the Holy Spirit of God within us.  You can choose to worship God in your house, in your car, anywhere or anytime the Spirit of God moves you. When you sing from the heart in spirit and truth, you're not singing about God, rather you're singing to Him. Truth is expressed outwardly from a heart filled with gratitude and love toward our Lord and Savior, Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Jesus the Messiah. 

 

True Worship

 

  

"An hour is coming," Jesus informed the Samaritan woman, 'and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth. True worshipers are those who worship the Father in spirit and truth. Paul calls them "the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory in Christ Jesus and put no confidence in the flesh"(Phil. 3:3). It is such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers by drawing them to Himself. God desires for His children to worship Him alone freely, boldly, and passionately.
