Worship on this Mountain

25 Jun

John 4:19-24
“Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet.  Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”
Jesus declared, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem… 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.”

The Jews and the Samaritans worshipped God on two different mountains.  The woman speaking to Jesus in this verse was starting to get uncomfortable with where the conversation was heading.  She thought that she could start an argument about which was the right place.  Fortunately the Lord was not distracted from His objective by her question.

Jesus answered that God is Spirit.  He knows no physical limitations as to time and place.  He explained to the woman that anywhere you worshipped God was the right place.  This is a great blessing to us.

Worshipping God is one of the greatest experiences you could have.  It doesn’t matter where you set aside the place.  The key is that we come into His presence in spirit and in truth.  To be alone with the Lord is something you cannot afford to miss.

Take the opportunity today to worship in His presence.  Worship Him in spirit and truth, as He calls us to.  You will find it to be one of the high points of your day.
