In Spirit and In Truth
God is a spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
- John 4:24
At the well, the Samaritan woman recognized that Jesus was a prophet, and she
launched into the ongoing dispute between the Jews and the Samaritans
regarding the proper place to worship God. Jesus offered her a fresh way to
see God, the "who" of worship instead of the "how" or "where."
As God is a Spirit, so are you. You may think you have a spirit, but you are a
spirit. Jesus said we must worship God in spirit. If you try to worship God in
your flesh, you will be distracted by where you are, how you feel, and what is
happening around you.
While still chained in darkness, a prisoner in the dungeons of Rome, Paul
rejoiced in being seated with Christ in heavenly places (Ephesians 2:6). Paul
was not hallucinating! He took hold of the revelation that he was a spirit,
and in spirit he dwelt in the presence of God. If you live in the flesh you
will miss it, because revelation is not received in your flesh. Take hold of
this reality and learn to live, see, and hear in the spirit.
- John 4:24
- Ephesians 2:6
- Isaiah 57:15
