God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth (John 4:24)

Many years ago, Robert Grant wrote the hymn “O Worship the King,”

O worship the King

all glorious above

O gratefully sing His power and His love;

Our Shield and Defender,

the Ancient of Days,

Pavilion’d in splendour,

And girded with praise.

 

O tell of His might,

O sing of His grace,

Whose robe is the light,

Whose canopy space,

His chariots of wrath

the deep thunder-clouds form,

And dark is His path on the winds of the storm.

Amen!

These two verses introduce us to the glory of God and the opportunity that we have to worship Him. However, a growing concern for many pastors is that many in their congregations attend church on Sunday because it is the right thing to do – not to worship the Lord. In other words, the act of coming together and fellowshipping has become more important than being in God’s presence where we worship Him through praise and prayer.

It is like the couple who had their baby christened at church, and then, after the service, had a party to celebrate the event. Aunts and uncles began arriving along with grandparents, nieces, nephews, and friends. Everyone began talking and eating. Finally someone spoke up and asked, “Where’s the baby?” The parents had taken the child to his bedroom and placed it in the crib to take a nap. Everyone was so busy enjoying one another that they had forgotten why they were there.
Worship is essential to a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. In Scripture above, the Lord explains to a woman who had committed many sins that a time was coming – and really, had come – when true believers would worship in spirit and truth. The Messiah was standing right before her, and in His presence she found forgiveness for all that she had done and salvation for her soul.

It was then that she realized the freedom of heart and mind that God was extending to her. And she began to worship the Lord by telling others of His marvellous grace and love.

Worship has to do with real people who have real needs. When we understand the gift the Father has given us, we will want to worship Him without ceasing.

May God Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
