What is Worship?

But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father
is seeking such to worship Him...John 4:23, NKJV

For many years Christians have broken fellowship and broken God's heart in the name of worship. We have argued over form, anguished over the opinions of others, and attacked those who looked or acted differently. Meanwhile in Heaven, the search goes on --

When you can give yourself permission to do everything else imperfectly, so long as you love Him completely...that is worship.

When you can come to Him boldly, even at the risk of the disapproval of others...that is worship.

When you can pursue His presence, even when your heart is broken...that is worship.

When you can submit your life to Jesus even when you don't understand all of what is happening around you...that is worship.

When you can love Jesus with ridiculous generosity, offering to Him the finest of your time, your talent, and your treasure...that is worship.

The Father still looks for that kind of worshiper. I hope His search finds completion in you.
