“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.“ – John 4:24
A few years ago as I was reading in the book of John, this scripture caught my attention. I prayed and asked God to reveal to me what He wanted me to know about it. I’m going to do my best to try and explain it to you the way God gave it to me.
OK, you know the parts in scripture that say, ‘do no murder, steal, etc…’? This is a point blank command…this is TRUTH. Don’t do it. OR… ‘honor your father and mother’. This is also a point blank command. Do it.
The worshiping in truth part, I got but the worshiping in spirit part goes a little deeper. When I worship in spirit, this is when God becomes personable to me.
This is my walk, not yours.
As you enter into the presence of the Lord, fall at His feet, and seek Him like never before, God will in turn, reveal things to you like never before.
The deeper your desire to grow in God and the stronger your desire to rise in Him, the more He requires of you.
“You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.“ – Jeremiah 29:13
Now this leads me to something completely different but alike all at the same time.
A short run down of my past:
I was raised in church my whole life. A very good church and by a wonderful family that taught me lots of important things. Faithfulness for one…and also that scripture trumps everything. So when I became an adult and began seeking God out on my own, I learned something new. Just because I’ve heard something all my life does not mean it is the ONLY truth…maybe there is more. Not to dismiss what I had already been taught but to discover more!
I learned how to get in and breakdown scriptures for myself and let God reveal Himself to me, personally.
So today, I want to encourage you to seek God for WHO He is…and not just who you’ve been told He was.
God is still God. He is the same today as He was yesterday and 500 years ago. He will be the same God tomorrow and He desires to have a personal relationship with you, not just something or Someone to mark off your long list of ‘to do’s’…
Let’s worship God in Spirit AND in Truth!
