Dailies ~ In His Word

Dailies ~In His Word 1-28-19
Day 27-28
I find it interesting to follow rabbit trails in the Word of God. You know, the notes or the highlights you put in there in certain colors, from even years past, can bring you a great study in the morning!  Today I was studying on Worship! Yes it was in Psalm 95 again, and it gave me a posture of prayer and worship all in just a few lines and then pointed out the fact that these must be done in obedience.  Then I followed the notes of my study bible over to John 4.
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
Even though they knew the true worship, they did not all get that Jesus was the one True God. They were just not paying enough attention to worship in spirit and so they could not really worship in truth. Those who truly knew God, knew Jesus, and thus they knew the Truth. These are the true worshipers because even though we are not all Jews, we can all know God and worship Him in spirit and in truth. Remember I said before it’s a heart to heart, it is also a spirit to spirit kind of truth.  We cannot fake it till we make it! We either worship Him will all that we are, or we don’t.
So, that’s something to think on today!
Heavenly Father, we long to worship you in spirit and in truth today, help us to seek Your presence anew this day. In Jesus’ name, amen.
