Your Worship Pleases God

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.
John 4:24

God calls you and me to be true worshippers. Through Christ, we worship Him in spirit and truth. God seeks out those who worship Him.

What is Real Worship?

One day, Jesus met a woman at a well on the edge of town. As the conversation drew on, the woman began discussing where you should worship.

Jesus answered by saying that a time would come when where you worship wouldn’t be as important as how you worship. Worship has more to do with the attitude of the heart than the location.

So many Christians get caught up in the formality and tradition of worship. They think worship has to happen at a particular time or place. They believe you must worship in a certain way or only with a specific style of music. They see the church building as the only proper place to worship God.

Jesus changed everything with this conversation. He broke through traditions and religion. Jesus said there are only two requirements for worship. Only worship done in spirit and truth is God-honoring.

Spirit and Truth

What does it mean to worship God in spirit and truth?

God is spirit, and true worship begins in your heart. Worship isn’t about music or singing. It is not about the style or the instrumentation. You can worship God with a guitar or pipe organ. True worship is your expression of love and gratitude to God.

Worshipping, in truth, has two aspects. Worshipping, in truth, means you come to God in the way He requires.

Some people think God will hear you as long as you are sincere. God says you only come to Him through His son, Jesus Christ. Your worship must always line up with God’s Word.

Worship From the Heart

The second aspect of worshipping in truth has to do with your heart. You must worship the Lord with a sincere heart. You can sing worship songs all day long, but if your heart isn’t focused on God, you’re wasting your time. Worship without honesty is no worship at all.

You can worship God in the grandest cathedral or a grass hut – you can be part of a large crowd or in your pajamas, watching online in your living room.

Worshipping in spirit and truth is worshipping God through the name of Jesus with an open and honest heart before God.

Look at that promise once again.

God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth. – John 4:24

Make these confessions.

  • I can worship God wherever I am.
  • I worship the Lord through the name of Jesus.
  • When I worship, my heart focuses on God.
  • God accepts my worship when I worship Him with an honest and sincere heart.

In Jesus’ name,

As a follower of Christ, you know that when you come to God in prayer or worship, you must come in spirit and in truth.
