Today’s Promise

My Worship Pleases God

John 4:23

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.


Your Unique Worship

As a Christian, you have a unique ability to worship God. Only you can worship Him in Spirit and Truth. 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 worship God, but as a follower of Christ, you bring a special type of worship that God seeks. Jesus said that 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 worshiping from the heart.

Real Worship is based on truth.

Honesty is the beginning point of God-pleasing worship. It’s not about performance or ritual but heartfelt expressions 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 is more interested in 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. There is never a place for pretense or ego when it comes to true worship.

God loves it when His children come to Him in thankful praise and worship.

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 confessions.

  • 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,
Amen
