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. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (John 4:23-24 KJV)
What it means to become a true worshipper? The word worship has a deep meaning than just raising our hands during the Praise and Worship services. It means to give honor or devote to God. Only God deserves to be worshipped from us. Not to anyone else.
When we worship to our King, our relationship with Him will become stronger. When I worship Him through music, reading His words, praying, or to be active in my community, I want to spend more time with Him. Do we know why many people have faced many problems in their lives? They worship wrong things that would contradict with their spirit men. For example, person wants to gamble to be a multibillionaire, such as Bill Gate, Tiger Wood, and Michael Jackson. Even though Michael Jackson was the famous pop star during his lifetime, he chose to follow the death road by taking wrong medicines and decided to change his physical image to please the world. Bill Gate, a multibillionaire for Microsoft program, is famous but does he have his personal relationship with Jesus Christ? Even though Tiger Wood confessed his mistakes to the world, he and his wife decided to file for divorce. As we see, these people only wanted to please the whole wide world rather than please God.
We cannot please the world and God. We have to make a decision who we want to serve. Some churches are broken their covenants with God because they left their first love and decided to please the world. When we left our first love, our worships will become useless to God. Nowadays, many churches sell their products in order to make themselves multibillionaire churches, such as Paula White Ministries, Lakewood Church, TD Jakes, Kenneth Copeland, and Trinity Broadcasting Network. God exposed Paula White to the media because she used God’s ministries for wrong purpose. CNN Larry King Lives exposed who Joel Osteen really was, even though Larry didn’t know what he was doing. Joel Osteen didn’t tell the whole truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. During his interview, he proclaimed that there are many ways to Heaven.
We need to worship God in right way. We cannot be double minded in order to please both worlds. We cannot be lukewarm Church as one of seven churches in Asia.
Paul said in Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
Do you like to become a true worshipper of Jesus Christ? If so, please give your whole life to Him by confessed that you are sinner and ask Him forgiveness of your sins and invite Him to your life.
