Message of the Day: Genuine Worship Must Be In Accordance with God’s Nature, which is Spirit!

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

The large crowd following Jesus caught the attention of the Pharisees who were jealous of him and soon might become violent. Jesus therefore decided to leave Judea for Galilee ( John 4: 1-3).

When he reached a village in Samaria, he met a Samaritan woman and engaged into a conversation. The woman did not understand when he offered her living water. Realizing that she would have to see her personal sin before she could see her spiritual need, Jesus began to talk about her marital status. She tried to hide her predicament but Jesus’ remarks made her realize she was talking to person with divine knowledge (John 4:4-9).

She therefore, turned the conversation to religion by referring to the disagreement between the Jews and Samaritans about the location of the temple. Jesus told her that the place of worship is irrelevant, because genuine worship must be in accordance with the nature of God, which is Spirit. It should be done in reality (truth) and certainty which is of great importance for the proper understanding of Christian worship.

As God is Spirit, so He invites and demands a spiritual, and truthful worship!
