Read John 4:13-26
“But the time is coming—indeed it’s here now—when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth. 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 4:23-24 (NLT)
Jesus’s first public revelation of himself as the Messiah is to a Samaritan woman, who would be viewed by Jews as a heretic if not an unbeliever. In this conversation the woman comes to realize that Jesus knows her completely and fully, and in an instant her life is changed. Worship is not about rules and special places, but about having a right relationship with God, knowing that He is completely worthy of our adoration and obedience. How about you? Do you understand deep in your soul that Jesus has already known your every thought, word and action—and has already forgiven every one that is less than good? Spend some time today letting God remind you afresh of His saving love.
