SCRIPTURE LESSON FOR TODAY
“…A time will come, however, indeed it is already here, when the true (genuine) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth (reality); for the Father is seeking just such people as these as His worshipers. God is a Spirit (a spiritual Being) and those who worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth (reality)…” ~ John 4: 23-24 (AMP)
Unless we have a personal relationship with Jesus, we cannot truly worship God in Spirit and in Truth. Our spirit won’t connect with His unless God has redeemed (saved) us. Our spirit then comes alive and we can respond to God on a spiritual level, rather than on a carnal (of the flesh) level.
This is the truth (the reality). God is spirit, so we need to worship Him in spirit and in truth. As long as we are living in the ‘carnal’ nature, or partaking in paganism and Idolatry (example: Jeremiah 10: 2-5) we can’t meet with God more intimately as He longs for us to do so. “Those who pay regard to vain idols forsake their hope of steadfast love.” Jonah 2:8. “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” 1 John 5:21
Let us worship the Lord today and everyday, in Spirit and in Truth.
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!!!
