Day 32 – Prayer Focus – Worship the Father in Spirit and in Truth

John 4:23-24 in the NIV says- Yet a time is coming and NOW has come when the TRUE worshipers will worship the Father in SPIRIT and in TRUTH, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers MUST WORSHIP in SPIRIT and in TRUTH.

God is spirit so we can worship Him anywhere, He is more interested in how we worship, ( is it genuine and true) then where.

What does it mean to worship Him in Spirit? Romans 12:1, (NIV), says- Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God— this is your SPIRITUAL ACT of WORSHIP.
Verse 2– Do not conform any longer to the pattern of the world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. THEN you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is— His good, pleasing and perfect will.

IN the Old Testament animals were sacrificed on the altar by the priest as a means of worship. Jesus, our example, became the ultimate sacrifice so that we might live. What a mighty God we serve.

Out of a heart of obedience and thanksgiving we can joyfully offer ourselves as a living sacrifice and be the worshiper that our Father seeks, one who WORSHIPS in SPIRIT and in TRUTH. What a privilege we have been given.
