Our worship to God is not determined by our circumstances; nor is our relationship with God dictated by our emotions. He loves us through and through. No matter where we’ve been or where we’ve come from, we can rest in the truth of God; He chooses to love us regardless.
The woman said to Him, “Sir, I perceive that You are a prophet. Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.”
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. 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. God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
The woman said to Him, “I know that Messiah is coming” (who is called Christ). “When He comes, He will tell us all things.”
Jesus said to her, “I who speak to you am He.”
“I rise before dawn and cry for help; I have put my hope in your word.” (Psalm 119:147) Because of God’s great love for us, we can put our hope in His Word because His word is true.
“God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” (John 4:24) As we are sealed by the Holy Spirit, who is our guarantee, (2 Corinthians1:22) we stand in His truth, therefore, we worship in the truth and spirit of Jesus Christ. “Because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever” (2 John1:2)
We worship Him in truth, because He is the Truth and His truth forever lives in the heart of the believer. Our hearts turn to Him in worship because He is the God who can never lie. (Titus1:2)
Center your heart on these truths from God. Trust in His faithfulness and worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
