Spirit speaks to spirit, does yours?

 

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. John 4:24 NKJV.

It is every believer’s responsibility to discover how the Lord wants to be worshiped and to explore and cultivate a relationship with Him out of which sincere, Holy Spirit-enabled worship will flow.

Worship-In-Spirit-And-In-Truth

Jesus gives clear and simple instructions, worship in “spirit” (your personal spirit) that is alive through new birth (John 1:12, 13; 3:6, 7) and aglow with Holy Spirit enablement (1 Cor. 14:15).

This is not mechanical, sing three hymns and sitting down, it is not rote, or merely human activity but dynamically capacitated spiritual action.

“In truth” emphasizes biblical integrity joined to personal honesty, manifest in a heart of sincerity, a humble manner of transparency, and a relational integrity. Meaning and being what we say, as well as being spiritually energized in our worship, opens the way to that worship the Father seeks.

What matters is not where one worships but the attitude of heart and mind. True worship is not mere form and ceremony, but spiritual reality, which is in harmony with the nature of God, who is Spirit. Worship must also be in truth, that is, transparent, sincere, and according to biblical mandates.

Is your spirit speaking to Him in truth?
