KEY SCRIPTURE: John 4:23 KJV “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.”
Spiritual worship is a worship based on the word of God and is inspired by the Spirit of God. It is a worship in faith. Faith acknowledges that you are right in the presence of God as you worship. Such a person does everything for God, with conviction and certainty. He is not a religious worshipper. What is the difference between a religious worshipper and a spiritual one?
The religious worshipper uses the act of worship as a means to please God or to have God’s approval over his life., but the spiritual worshipper does so as an appreciation of the many goodness of God as, well as a means of expressing God’s greatness unto Him.
A religious worshipper goes through the motions and tradition of worship without any sense of reality. The religious worshipper worship without any deep love and surrender to God. Worship is a love affair and proceeds naturally from the heart of the spiritual worshipper.
The misery of religious worship is that it is dry and emotionless. The religious worshipper can leave the place of worship and tell lies without blinking his eyed. A religious worshipper leaves the place of worship to continue with a fight he had stopped in order to go to church.
God has no use for religious worshippers, for no effort of man meets God’s approval. (Isaiah 64:6) It is only those who have acknowledged the mercy and grace of God, and counts on that only, can give God an acceptable worship (Eph 2:8,). If you are a religious worshipper then please repent and accept the grace of God demonstrated through our Lord Jesus Christ, so you can offer a true spiritual worship unto God.
It is a bliss of wonder to really offer a spiritual worship. (Ps 16:11) Your whole being gets enveloped in His presence. This makes God very real and worthy of our total surrender. It is at such a moment that we encounter supernatural provisions and God will surely communicate His mind to you. (Acts 13:2) God our father longs for such worshippers and our inner man also craves for it. Let nothing deprive you of true sincere worship unto the Lord.
