I was on the tube coming back from my postgrad lectures, when the scripture below lashed me. In that moment, I could only sigh and promise Abba that I would have a chat with Him about the beauty of His word and how He almost made me miss my stop 😂
I digress, read the scripture below. Let me know if it made you shine your eye too!
“Believe me, woman, the time is coming when you Samaritans will worship the Father neither here at this mountain nor there in Jerusalem. You worship guessing in the dark; we Jews worship in the clear light of day. God’s way of salvation is made available through the Jews.
👉🏽But the time is coming—it has, in fact, come—when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth.👈🏽
That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” “It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth…” – John 4:21-24 The Message
What is worship without the truth of who God is?
What is worship without understanding His Word which is TRUE?
Is your worship rooted in truth or performance?
Is your worship rooted in The Word’s expectation or man’s expectation?
Cheii 🙈 Lord, may my worship be acceptable you.
Let me not exchange truth for sensationalism. The music, the melodies, the usual ‘worship setting’ isn’t wrong. But when we place those things above His TRUTH, we’ve missed true worship. Those things serve a greater purpose when we understand the God that we sing, dance and shout about.
I don’t sing about God because I enjoy singing. I sing about God because I enjoy MORE the GOD that I sing about. I enjoy the truth of knowing Him, believing in Him. I am in love with His word. Everything else is a by-product of that love for His TRUTH.
The fact that He is, Yaweh. Through Him ALL things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made (John 1:3). In him we live and move and have our being (Acts 17:28) and by virtue of this we are His Children. Even as I type this, my heart is overwhelmed by that very TRUTH. This is why my worship pursues truth!
The truth of Your Word is enough to move the Spirit you put in me. You are enough. You are my reward.
Your Word (the truth) connects my spirit with Yours in Worship! Wow 😍❤️🙌
