Topic: BE A TRUE WORSHIPPER (https://burningbush.org.ng/category/devotional/)
Bible Reading: John 4:23-24
📖23….”But 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.
📖24….God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
🔥Worship is the strongest tool at the Christian’s disposal to draw God to himself. It is the highest form of sacrifice, which involves the sacrifice of the worshipper, himself. Abraham was the first person to use the word worship in the Bible in Gen 22:5. Because of our fore knowledge of what he was going to mount Moriah to do, we can say that worship means to sacrifice to God, something one holds in high esteem, and also expect to have it back by faith (…and I and the lad will go yonder and WORSHIP, and come again to you – Gen 22:5). Since he said they, (Isaac and himself), will come again to them, it means he was expecting to come back with Isaac. True worshippers get back all they offer to God…Luke 6:38.
🔥🔥Jesus said in our text that God is seeking for true worshippers. These are believers who will sacrifice themselves willingly by passing a vote of no confidence on themselves while trusting God for everything. True worshippers diligently serve God without excuses in the place of worship. True worshippers are obedient and disciplined. As such, they are not scared of the magnitude of whatever work that’s to be done in honour of God. They are not self defending even if criticized for doing good and hated for such good deeds 1 Peter 3:17.
🔥🔥🔥Dearly beloved, if Papa Abraham was the father of faith, father of consecration, first Hebrew, father of tithing, first to receive Communion, first to meet with Melchizedek, was also the first to worship God, then we must take a closer look at his worship. He sacrificed gift of promise, when there was no hope for another. True worshippers are therefore those that seek to please God during difficult times without expecting anything in return from Him. That is worshipping God in spirit and in truth.
🙏Father, in the course of my worshipping you, let me value no property of mine to be too great to give unto your glory in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Oh Lord, turn my eyes away from the beauty of this world when am alone with you in worship, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious father, occupy every vacuum in me so that I won’t serve the enemy with any member of my body, in Jesus’ name.
