In Union With The Father
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 (John 4:23).
T o worship God in spirit and in truth means to worship Him from your spirit, and in accordance with His Word. However, before anyone can worship or serve God with his spirit, that spirit must be in union with the Father. Jesus said, “ …the Father seeketh such to worship him.” Why does the Father seek such?
The reason is that real worship is a communion with the Father. It’s beyond the singing or the words offered in prayer; it’s about the fellowship that takes place in the realm of the spirit as your spirit communes with Him. This is why, sometimes in worship, you experience such glorious transportation of the Spirit; a blissful experience beyond words.
God expects you to live, and serve Him, from your spirit. You can’t serve God with your brain or ideas. You can’t serve Him with your senses. In Romans 1:9, Paul declared, “For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son….” You serve God with your spirit. Your spirit is where God lives; His light is in your spirit. So, serve Him with your spirit by living in and through the Word.
Dear Father, I take advantage of your presence in my life and the inextricable oneness with your In Union With The Father SUNDAY 1 Spirit, and as such, I enjoy and experience a glorious fellowship and transformation from glory to glory. I’m full of strength, courage, and divine vitality, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
