Judges 21:1-Ruth 1:22
Verse of the day:
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. (John 4:23)
No not the “World Wide Web”. The first W is water. How refreshing is a cold glass of water after working hard or on a hot day or after working hard on a hot day. That much needed water refreshes your body and quenches your physical thirst. Jesus talks to the Samaritan woman and offers her the living water that comes from Him and quenches spiritual thirst and brings eternal life. John 4:13-14 says this. Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” Are you drinking from the living water that Jesus offers? Have you offered someone a drink of living water by introducing them to Jesus? But I’m getting ahead of myself, that’s actually the third “W”.
The second “W” is worship. In their conversation, the woman at the well and Jesus talk about worship. Jesus tells her it’s not so important where you worship as how you worship. He told her the Father is looking for those who will worship Him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24 says this. “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. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” We must worship God with sincerity and a spirit that is in tune with the spirit of God. We must worship God according to the truth of God’s Word and through the truth of Jesus Christ.
