Dailies- 2019

Dailies ~in His Word
Day 25
Does God need our worship? Some churches lift their hands in worship as David talks of doing in Psalms, or Abraham did in the book of Genesis. He also fell down with his face to the ground in worship to God.
We sometimes wonder if posture is important to God? Does it matter if we are driving down the road singing songs of worship to Him? Or do we have to be at church in order to worship? After all they call it a house of worship some places.
 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things.  And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, Acts 17:24-28
The book of John tells us here that Jesus taught us to worship in spirit and truth. This means it is not about our posture but our heart because with our heart we worship in spirit, and in truth, or we merely go through the motions. Some people seem to do as one of my brothers said as a teen and “play the roll” of worshiper. We need to be truthful when we worship and not just doing the thing because it’s the ritual that we are taught. Think on this while you spend time with Him today.
You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews.  But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:22-24
Heavenly Father, thank you for allowing us to worship you, heart to Heart, spirit to Spirit in truth. Showing you our love and honor of and for You. In Jesus name, amen
