“Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.” (John 4:23-24)
All Christians worship, but not all Christians worship Jesus.
As Christians, somehow we’ve lost what worship is all about. We think that just because we call ourselves Christians we are true worshipers of Christ. That’s not what Jesus says in John 4:23-24.
In John 4:23-24, Jesus basically says there are lots of worshipers in life, but God, the Father, is looking for a certain type of worshiper—one who worships Him “in spirit and truth.” Jesus longs for people who worship Him from the depths of their soul, not the mindlessness of some words on a church video screen. Worship is more than singing a Christian song or going to church. Actually, worship is the way you relate to God on a daily basis! Is “worship” the best description for the way you relate to God each day, whether at work, home, or church? It should be!
