_ 092114 True Worship

Good day and blessings on everyone. let’s give thanks unto the Lord, for He is Good, yes He is Good. I feel real good in my sanctified soul today because I understand whom I belong to. What about you?

Today’s Prayer

Father, the answers that we desire when we pray do not hinge so much on Your faithfulness to us, as on our faithfulness to You, do they? Help us to see that “whatsoever we ask in Jesus’ name” means whatsoever we ask in accordance with Your will, for when Jesus was here in person, He said that He only did what the Father directed. Help us to sincerely repent of any wrong-doing before we come to You with our needs. In the wonderful name of Jesus we pray, Amen.

Let’s eat.


23 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. 24 For God is Spirit, so those who worship him must worship in spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24

Have you ever heard a person say, “I went to church, but I didn’t get anything out of it?” It’s not about you. The question is, “Did God get anything out of it? Did you praise God? Did you give Him glory?” What if somebody came to your birthday party and said, “Well, I didn’t get anything out of it.” It’s not about you; it’s about Him. We have come to worship Him and glorify Him. We’re to worship God “in spirit and truth” (John 4:24).

Some of you read about someone like the Samaritan woman and say, “I’m glad that wicked lady got saved. She sure needed it.” So do you. In the fourth chapter of John, we read of this woman from Samaria who was saved and she needed it. In the third chapter of John, there was Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews and a religious leader. He also needed to be saved. What’s the lesson? There is no one so good they don’t need to be saved and no one so bad they can’t be saved. Nicodemus was thirsty and this woman at the well was thirsty and if you’re thirsty, what you’re thirsting for is Jesus Christ, the Living Water. He will save you, and He’ll keep you saved.

Here’s a series of questions:

  • Who do you relate with more: the woman at the well or the religious leader, Nicodemus? Why?
  • When have you been focused on what you got out of worship instead of what you brought to God? What needs to change in your approach to worship?

Please don’t answer me, answer to God!

Read the Word and worship God for who He is instead of focusing on what you are getting out of it.

Quote of the Day

I realize that many Christians have not been praying because they have not accepted the reality of war in which we find ourselves. There is a spiritual war mode that we must appropriate. It is an aggressive stance that we take against evil. It is governed by love for people, but it is fearless and uncompromising with the powers of darkness that manipulate people to fulfill evil plans. ~Francis Frangipane~
