The ‘Must’ in True Worship (Oct 14th)

Verse

[Jesus said,] “The Father is looking for those who will worship him that way. For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in Spirit and in truth.”

John 4:24 nlt


Thought

Growing up, I loved to play hide-n-seek. Sometimes I liked to be found. Other times, I loved the seeking and discovery of those who were hiding. I especially loved it when there was a surprise find — they surprised me or I surprised them. In worship, we can love the surprises, but we need to ditch the hiding! God wants us to seek, ask, and knock. He promises to help us find, to answer, and to open the door. But we also need to be aware that God is also seeking us. And as the Father seeks us, the Holy Spirit draws us near and makes the joyous surprise of worship something precious!


Prayer

O Father, I seek you, so please find me! Use your Holy Spirit to draw me closer to you and to my brothers and sisters in Christ. In Jesus’ name I ask this. Amen.
