True Worshippers

John 4:23-24–The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.


True worshippers–True worshippers are those who worship the Father.  That is, because we have been born again, born of the Spirit of God and have spiritual life, we worship God as our Father.  True worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth.  In spirit is in direct opposition with the flesh.  If we worship in the flesh then we are not true worshippers.  It is not enough just to show up and go through the motions.  Our worship must come forth from the new nature, from the spirit, and inspired by the Holy Spirit.  Our worship is to be done in truth, without hypocrisy.

The Father seeks such to worship Him–The Father desires and looks for these kinds of worshippers.  He searches through the congregation to locate these worshippers.  It brings Him great pleasure when He finds them because they are new creatures in Christ Jesus, His Son.  They are His creation and His children.  They are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus.  The sacrifice of praise brings Him great delight.  God is a Spirit and they that approach Him in worship must do so in spirit and in truth.  Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.
