John 4:23 “But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him”
What is the Father seeking in this hour? I believe we are rightly related to Him when we are in the world but not of the world. A life of worship in spirit and truth means that I have been born again from above, by the spirit and I am on an active journey with the Spirit of Truth who is leading me and guiding me into a revelation of oneness. It is an awareness that I am the temple of the Holy Spirit and that my life has become an offering of ongoing and unbroken communion with the body and the Bridegroom. Therefore, I am always “in Church” because I am part of a “Spiritual House”, a building not made with hands but with hearts around the world that are moving in grace filled harmony by the Holy Ghost. I am praying without ceasing in intercession initiated by the Spirit. I have entered the fellowship of His suffering where I carry His burdens and give expression to the longings of His heart. It is defined spontaneously by my reaction to His presence. My worship life of Spirit and Truth has its origins in the “secret place” that God alone sees. It is a life of intimacy where I know Him as one who has been betrothed. It is a life of “instant obedience”. It can be the simplest act that is driven by a passion for His presence. It is when He is enthroned in my heart and my body is functioning as a host for His Life.
