My Worship is Pleasing to God
But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers.
As a Christian, you have a unique ability to worship God like no other being in all creation. You can worship Him in spirit and truth.
God has given you a better standing when it comes to worship. No other creature can lift up praise and worship like you.
The trees of the field and even the stars in the sky bring praise and glory to God. The angels and all creation can worship God, but as a follower of Christ, you bring a special type of worship that God seeks. Jesus said to please God with real worship we must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Real worship is spirit-based.
Jesus said real worship is done in the spirit. Religion is all about the activity of worship. Many people confuse religious rituals with God-pleasing worship. True worship is more spiritual than it is physical. True worship is all about the heart. God-pleasing worship isn’t about music, or hands raised. It isn’t about the style, the posture, or even the volume. God-pleasing worship is the grateful heart of the believer expressing thankfulness to the loving heavenly Father. Spirit-based worship is all about the heart.
Real Worship is truth based.
Honesty is the beginning point of God-pleasing worship. It’s not about performance or ritual, but about a heartfelt expression of praise. God doesn’t care about how well you sing, or even if you can carry a tune. God is never impressed with our ability to worship. He cares about our honesty in worship.
A person with an ungrateful or bitter heart will never be a true worshipper. Your heart must be clean and honest before the Lord before you can worship. Truthful worship must come from a sincere and thankful heart.
Look at this promise once again.
But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. – John 4:23
Make these declarations with me.
- I worship God in spirit and truth.
- I gratefully express my thanks and praise to Him.
- My worship always begins in my heart.
- God loves it when I worship him in honesty and with a pure heart.
In Jesus Name,
What type of worshipper are you? Today, spend some time worshipping and thanking the Lord for all the blessings He has poured into your life. Don’t worry about how to worship or if you are doing it right. Just focus on lifting your praise and thanksgiving from a genuine, thankful heart. That is the worship that pleases the Father.
