John 4:24(KJV); God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
It is one thing to worship in spirit, another to worship in truth and another to worship both in spirit and truth.
True worship is done in SPIRIT and TRUTH.
God is deliberate in stating that it ought to be in both spirit and truth.
He is also deliberate in starting from the Spirit and not from truth because this is the true order of worship.
It begins from Spirit because God firstly seeks to establish the nature issue. You must know and understand that you are a spirit, like God is a Spirit.
This means that you do not worship as a man.
Mere men seek to distance themselves from the God; they worship because they do not understand that they are spirit.
God says, “He that is joined to the Lord is one Spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:17).
Worship is the coming together of spirits; not man and spirit but spirit and spirit.
It is only when you understand worship in this order that you can worship in TRUTH.
FURTHER STUDY: 1 Corinthians 6:17, John 3:6
Worship is the coming together of spirits; not man and spirit but spirit and spirit. It is only when you understand worship in this order that you can worship in TRUTH.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for this word for today. I worship in this understanding. I know the God I worship. He is the Creator of heaven and earth, the One who set the oceans on their course, who parts the seas and calms the storms. I am one with Him. In this truth, I live in the fullness of the life of the spirit, to the glory of Your Name. Amen.
