The Spiritual Nature of God and His Worship
Key Scriptures for Worship
19 The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet.
20 Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.
21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
23 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.
Verse 22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
The age old controversy between the Jews and the Samaritans is over. The verdict was read in verse 21 were Jesus answered the most profound question throughout history. Will you and I keep the sin consciousness? In other words, where will we worship? A place to take care of sin, and be religious about traditions.
Worship should of been about effective communication between God and man, and it turn out to be laws without the need for the One worshipped.
Worship And Don’t Understand God
The mountain of blessings is wonderful only if you know and understand why you worship? Jesus was explaining this principle to the Samaritan Woman.
We Understand God
During their conversation at Jacob’s well, an hour is coming when the revelation of worship will take place. It was shared to the Jews through Moses. God promised a spiritual deliverance. Salvation was becoming available even as the Messiah was speaking, but the woman didn’t know until He showed God’s love and liberty from sin.
“If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin (Romans 8:10).” This is the judicial result of any unwilling individual to see, and not walk in the light of the Lord. If you reject Jesus Christ, you are condemned already (John 3:18; Proverb 10:16), because you have simply choice not to believe in God sending his Son (John 3:16; Colossians 1:13). This is salvation: “For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, so also the Son gives life to whom He wishes (John 5:21).” But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God (John 3:21).
Jesus Christ said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6).” This is the sum of what the Samaritan Woman has done. Receive the truth and be set free to worship the Father God!
