Worshiping God in spirit and truth

Time is coming to worship God in spirit and truth

Scripture: God’s call to action, we must worship in spirit and truth.

The next category for Word of Life Images will be where God’s Holy Scripture directly calls you to action. I always find the interpretation to be very interesting, since there many interpretations for the same Scripture-based on which bible you’re looking at.

The Scripture comes from NIV Bible as follows;

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.

A good source for interpretation for me comes from the website example http://bible.cc/john/4-23.htm you can quickly see how the words are interpreted differently based on which translation or version of Bible that you’re using. At times this can add to confusion, since the intent is sometimes changed.  My interpretation is, you must worship God with your whole spirit, and worship in truth, and not put up a façade by going to a church merely to see friends and be entertained. Spirit and truth means you worship, seven days a week in your heart and soul, that’s where the essence of you resides, the Holy Spirit who dwells in you also knows when your heart speaks the truth.
