“But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth” John 4:23-24, NKJV.
A lot of times when we think about what true worship is, we think of it as physically bowing down on our knees and laying prostrate before the Lord. Yet, true worship to God is reverence to Him by bowing down in our heart and walking according to His truth. We exalt God not only by lifting our hands, but we lift up our lives. It extends beyond a Wednesday or Sunday service. It’s a daily service, and God is seeking such to worship Him in spirit and in truth.
As Satan did with Jesus, he will offer you the world for your priceless true worship. He wants you to bow down to him and what this world can give. Yet, tell Satan to get behind you! God says there should be no other gods before Him and only Him will you live for. There will be no sin, no thing, no money, or fame, that you will exalt and put before the Almighty God that saved you and redeemed you. He has been good to you and always will bring you into great places in your life.
Receive the charge as a man to truly worship the Father in this hour. Don’t allow anything to sidetrack you.
Prayer: Father, thank You and help me to always worship You. Help me to recognize if I have exalted anything in my life in worship, instead of You. I will worship You as God and God alone. Jesus is King. You will remain the head of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
“And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.'” Matthew 4:9-10, NKJV.
