WORSHIPING GOD IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH!
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24).
Every Christian is expected to worship God in spirit and truth in life. Until you worship God in spirit and truth, your worship is incomplete in life. Those who worship God in spirit and truth are the true and genuine worshipers in life. The worship of God should be dimensional namely; spiritual worship and truthful worship in life. The Bible says in the opening text that God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed expects him to worship Him in spirit and truth in life. It is the truthful aspect of a Christian’s worship that authenticates and reveals his spiritual worship before men in life forever (Matthew 5:16).
Firstly, your worship of God must be spiritual because God is a Spirit. There is no one that can worship God in the flesh in life. You are expected to worship God in the spirit; hence, your spirit must be in tuned and total submission to the Holy Spirit in life. That is why the Bible says in Philippians 3:3, “For we are the circumcision, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” Therefore, worshiping God in the spirit is the only acceptable medium which reflects in truthful behavioral characteristics for everyone to see in life. Indeed, every Christian is expected to take note of the fact that spiritual worship does not in any way glorify the flesh in life forever.
Also, you are expected to worship God in truth because God is The Truth in life (John 14:6). Worshiping God in the truth simply means living and exercising your faith according to the Word of God in life. God expects you to use His Word as your daily mirror of life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Psalm 119:105, “Your Word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” In fact, God’s Word is indeed a lamp to one’s feet by lightning up his ways and destiny in life. Whenever a Christian learns to use God’s Word as his mirror of life daily, therefore, his worship of God becomes balanced and dimensional in life. Therefore, every Christian should as a matter of necessity allows his worship of God to be in agreement with God’s Word which is the mirror of life daily and forever.
Daily Tip: God expects every Christian’s worship to be balanced and dimensional; hence, in spirit and truth in life forever. Shalom!
