I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"DO YOU WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

DO YOU WORSHIP GOD IN SPIRIT?



HOW OFTEN DO YOU PRAISE AND WORSHIP GOD? IT IS A CHOICE WE HAVE TO MAKE, EVEN WHEN WE DON'T FEEL LIKE IT. A BETTER QUESTION MIGHT BE, "HOW" DO YOU WORSHIP HIM? JESUS TELLS US IN JOHN 4:23-24 "But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth." SINCE THESE TWO VERSES SAY WE MUST WORSHIP IN "SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH", WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?



THE REASON WE MUST WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT IS BECAUSE THAT IS THE ONLY PART OF US THAT IS WORTHY TO APPROACH HIM. EPHESIANS 4:21-24 SAYS "If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus: That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; And be renewed in the spirit of your mind; And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."

 

WE COULD NEVER APPROACH GOD UNLESS WE WERE BORN AGAIN AND RENEWED OUR MINDS. 2ND

CORINTHIANS 5:17 TELLS US "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." WE HAVE TO COME TO GOD AS A NEW CREATURE IN CHRIST JESUS BECAUSE OUR BORN AGAIN SPIRIT IS JUST LIKE JESUS' SPIRIT. IT TELLS US THIS IN 1ST JOHN 4:17 "because as he is, so are we in this world." NOT ONLY IN THE WORLD TO COME, HEAVEN, BUT IN THIS WORLD THE HERE AND NOW.



WHEN WE DO WORSHIP GOD THROUGH OUR BORN AGAIN SPIRIT, WE CAN GO DIRECTLY TO HIM FACE TO FACE WITHOUT ANY FEAR OF REBUKE. HOWEVER, IF YOU COME TO HIM FEELING AS IF YOU ARE UNWORTHY, YOU ARE NOT IN THE SPIRIT BUT IN THE FLESH. LOOK WHAT ROMANS 8:8 SAYS " So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God." IT IS ONLY WHEN YOU REALIZE WHO YOU ARE IN JESUS THAT YOU CAN TRULY WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT.




SOME PEOPLE'S WORSHIP IS TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON HOW MUCH GOD BLESSES THEM. DON'T EVER BE ONE THAT ONLY WORSHIPS HIM FOR WHAT HE CAN DO FOR YOU. IF YOU ARE BORN AGAIN, THAT IS ENOUGH TO WORSHIP HIM EVERY SECOND OF EVERY DAY FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. JUST THINK ABOUT THAT LOVE AND WHAT JESUS DID FOR YOU AND I AM SURE YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU HAVE. IF NOT, YOU NEED TO THINK LONG AND HARD AS TO YOUR SALVATION. IF YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW, PLEASE FIND OUT BECAUSE YOUR ETERNITY DEPENDS ON IT. THERE IS NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT.




GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
