True Worship: An All Inclusive Lifestyle
John 4:23 "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. 24] God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Worship is an all encompassing, all inclusive experience and lifestyle. It is both spiritual and physical; temporal and eternal. It involves the total person, spirit, soul, body and our possessions. We must challenge ourselves to worship God in fullness.
God expects us to worship Him at two levels at all times: “In Spirit” and “In Truth.”
“In Spirit” addresses the supernatural dimension of our walk with God and the transcendent nature of His presence “In Truth” addresses the practical, everyday actions we engage in obedience to the Truth. Jesus said, “Your Word is Truth.”
True Worship in spirit and truth is shown through giving our three "T's" to God: Time, Treasure, & Talent.
The Apostle Paul confirms this in Romans 12:1, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service (“your act of spiritual worship” -NIV).
