Re: Verses to reflect upon: Are we just making noise?
These are some that I was looking at earlier today:
23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
“‘Among those who approach me
I will be proved holy;
in the sight of all the people
I will be honored.’”
A Living Sacrifice
1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
“Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty;
the whole earth is full of his glory.”
“‘Holy, holy, holy
is the Lord God Almighty,’
who was, and is, and is to come.”
I think that to worship in Spirit and Truth, you need to know God. Have a direct relationship and fellowship with Him. Know Him by directly experiencing Him.
Then you can truly worship Him.
