What Jesus said about worship

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

John 4:23-24 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.  God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

Jesus speaks of ‘true worshipers’. I believe that is what God is looking for. People who have a desire within them to worship God.  I want to be one of those people.

Matthew 4:10 Jesus said to him, “For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”

When we worship we are approaching God. It is a form of surrender.  We let go of our concerns and worries and begin to focus on Him.  We do not worship God for our situations and circumstances but IN our circumstances and situations.

Hebrews 4:16 So let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive his mercy and to find grace to help us in our times of need.

NOTICE the ‘stay there’ instruction. There is something special about the moments we spend or linger in worship and in His presence.

Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near to God.

James 4:8 And when you draw close to God, God will draw close to you.
