The Spirit And Truth

THE ONLY TRUE WAY TO WORSHIP OUR HEAVENLY FATHER GOD, IN SPIRIT AND TRUTH, IS TO WORSHIP JESUS CHRIST:

 

Apostle James R Winfree Sr, We Only Share God's Awesome Truth, The Gospel Of Jesus Christ, That Is Changing And Transforming Lives Forever!!!

 

The issue is not whether we will worship, but what. Even better, whom and how many religious people and their leaders worship who they do not know.

 

On Sundays, as many of us ready ourselves for corporate worship, perhaps the most significant single biblical text for guiding the essence of what we’re pursuing together when we gather is Jesus’s words in John 4:23–24.

 

“The hour is coming and is now where the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth, for the Father is seeking such Believers to worship Him. God is the Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and Truth.”

True worship, says Jesus Christ, is in Spirit and Truth. The “Truth” part is plain enough, with the coming of Jesus, that truth centers on His Person and work, the One who is Himself “The Truth” ( John 14:6 ) and the message about His saving accomplishments for us, which is “The Word of The Truth, the gospel” ( Colossians 1:5 ). It is this “Word of Truth” ( James 1:18 ) by which we’re given new birth, this “Word of Truth” ( 2 Timothy 2:15 ) that Christian workers endeavor to handle aright, and this truth that anchors and saturates worship that is truly Christian.

 

“True worship comes from Believers who are deeply emotional and who love deep and sound doctrine.” Elect Lady Betty and Myself will only worship One, The Lord God Jesus Christ. Period.

But what about “Spirit”? Is this our spirit or God’s Spirit? Jesus’s memorable statement in John 3:6 helps: “That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is the Spirit.” It’s not either-or, but both-and. For those who are new creatures in Christ, our spirit owes its existence and vibrancy to the Spirit of God.  “True worship comes only from spirits made alive and sensitive by the quickening of the Spirit of God”. God’s Spirit ignites and energizes our spirit.

Christian worship engages both heart and head. It necessitates true doctrine about the Father and His Son and their partnership in rescuing sinners, and due emotion about that doctrine. It is both an affair of the heart and an affair of the mind. Piper sums it up as “strong affections for God rooted in Jesus Christ.”

 

Worship must be vital and real in the heart, and worship must rest on the true perception of God became Man. There must be the Spirit and there must be the Truth. . . . Truth without emotion produces dead orthodoxy and a church full (or half-full) of artificial Jesus as the Father Himself . . . . On the other hand, emotion without truth produces empty frenzy and cultivates shallow people who refuse the discipline of rigorous thought as so many are you. But true worship comes from Believers who are deeply into the studying the Word of God for themselves and who love deep and sound doctrine. Strong truth for God rooted in Jesus the Christ is the Way and Truth and Life of biblical worship. Get to know the One you say you love and worship. Amen.
