Spirit and Truth
| Worship involves an
attitude and action. That is what is meant by worship in spirit and in
truth. Something is thought and something is done. Mind and manner are
involved. Deed and disposition are included. Worship is an act of
reverence paid to some object of worship.
Worship is associated with words like love, adoration, praise, thanksgiving, reverence, honor, obedience, veneration, awe, respect and bowing down. True worship is commanded. Therefore, it is a duty since God seeks worshippers (John 4:23, 24).
But worship is also a privilege. The worshipper derives spiritual blessings from his worship of Deity. Dear friend, do not deprive yourself of this God-given exercise of attitude and action. Assemble with the saints at every opportunity as well as worship privately.
