Do You Truly Worship God?

When it comes to worship, some of the most profound words are those of Jesus to the Samaritan woman He met at Jacob’s well in the city of Sychar (John 4:5). It was here that Jesus gave us explicit instructions on the type of worship the Father seeks.

John 4:23-24 – “But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true (one who cannot lie, real, genuine, sincere) worshipers will worship the Father in spirit (human) and truth (reality, the essence of a matter); for the Father is seeking (to look for, search, strive to find) such to worship (to kiss, adore, fall or prostrate before, pay reverence) Him. God is Spirit (Holy Spirit), and those who worship Him must (what must be done from duty) worship in spirit (human) and truth.”

Which, as usual, raises a few questions.

•  What is worship?

•  What’s the difference between worship and true worship?

•  What is true worship like internally?

•  What is true worship like externally?

•  And what does true worship look like today?

The Westminster Shorter Catechism

One last thought, in the Westminster Shorter Catechism, the first question goes like this:

Question: What is the chief end of man?

Answer: The chief end of man is to glorify God, and enjoy Him forever.

Did you catch that? We glorify by enjoying Him forever. So, do you enjoy God? Do you love your time with Him? Is that time the highlight of your day? Do you know how to worship Him in spirit and truth? If not, then keep listening.
