John 4 : 23: 24
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 God is Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in Spirit and in truth.
True Worship is a context defined by this two biblical passage with one passage complimenting the other.
Who Are True Worhippers and What is True Worship?
Starting with the Who Question; True Worshippers are not the best singers, they are not people with the best voice, the best number of people that falls under the anointing whe he/she sings, how smooth his/her voice achieves altissimo and so on and so forth.
True worshippers are one who does and engages in acts that depicts verse 23, huh! you are answering who are true worshippers with the word worship again, Yes! He(God) is, Worshippers are just worshippers there are no other words used to describe them, in worship there are only two(2) degrees, Good and Bad Worshippers, True and False Worshippers. So then what did you see in the passage, it said “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.” it simply describes the duty of a true worshipper and also the nature of a true worshipper, he worships the Father in Spirit and in Truth, there is none other attached to this, no other duty has been added to this duty, no other function has been added, no other way must be followed.
We must worship the Father in Spirit and in truth, so how do we go about this how is true worship supposed to look like.
What Is True Worship?
True Worship is a worship in Truth and in Spirit, a worship that gladens the heart of the Lord, those who worship the lord must worship him in Truth and in Spirit. True worship can only be achieved by these course.
What to do to worship truly? there are various lay down principles in the bible on a life that has been saved, a christ-like live, a live that is directed by the Holy Spirit, it is not so much as cramming the whole book but it is following and understanding what is written within the book.
What is Worship?
‘Worship’ are not slow songs that warms the heart and make you feel like crying, they are not soulful songs, harmonious rythmns and so on, they are indeed not limited to music, Worship is the entirely of our devotion to God. It is rather a lifestyle and not something you do for fun, It is a duty, It is the reason why God created you.
What You Wear,
Some people make very wrong statements which in its actual sense negates what they mean, they say “God does not care about what you wear or you look, like he searches the heart, he knows I want to worship him, so they carelessly wear what they wish.
They do not realize that if God actually searches their heart only he will see Lust and Shame (SIN).
Worship is our appearance, the clothing we put on everyday even to sleep, we are to worship the Lord till the end of the day it is not a partime Job rather it is a full time Job, infact it is not a Job it is a course, Because we learn how to be a true worshipper every day.
“GOD BLESS US AS WE LEARN TO WORSHIP HIM IN TRUTH AND IN SPIRIT”
