WORSHIPING GOD IN SPIRIT IS THE AUTHENTIC!
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24).
God can never be worshiped in the flesh because He is a Spirit Being in life. The flesh and the spirit are contrary because they can never be in agreement in life. Therefore, anyone who is in the flesh can never worship God because there is no way two can walk together unless they agree in life (Amos 3:3). 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 worshiping God in spirit is indeed the authentic form of worship in life. Worshiping God in the spirit can never be adulterated and faked in life forever.
The spiritual worship is the only authentic worship that is acceptable before God in life. The fleshly worship is carnal and full of pretense in life. God has nothing to do with such worship because He is neither moved by the flesh nor by emotions in life. But when a Christian worships God in the spirit, he becomes one with Him in life. That is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 6:17, “But he who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with Him.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to worship God in the spirit, he automatically joins himself with the Lord in life. Worshiping God in the spirit is of course the worship that is pure and undiluted in life forever.
When a Christian worships God in the spirit, he becomes fully circumcised in the spirit as well in life. The circumcision of his spirit makes him fully regenerated and transformed in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Philippians 3:3, “For we are the circumcisions, who worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh.” In fact, God actually wants a Christian to worship Him in spirit and in truth which is the genuine and acceptable form of worship in life. When you worship God in the spirit, you can never gratify the desires of the flesh in life. Worshiping God in the spirit indeed liberate the body and soul in life forever.
Daily Tip: Worshiping God in spirit is the only authentic worship that is acceptable before Him in life forever. Shalom!
