Worship in Spirit and in truth.
John 4:23-24 "23 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. 24 God
is a Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and in truth"
Romans 2:29 "But
he a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision of the heart,
in the spirit, not in the letter; whose praise not of men, but of God"
Philippians 3:3 "For we are the
circumcision, which worship God in the spirit,
and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh"
For me and all God's
chosen people the day of worship is everyday!
Psalm 145:4 "Every day will I bless thee; and
I will praise thy name for ever and ever"
I have been doing it since the Lord Jesus Christ
brought Salvation to my soul. I have not been promised that I will be here tomorrow; so TODAY is the day to exalt my Savior.
I do not do it once a week, nor once a month, nor once a year; but everyday (by God's grace) and I do it by trusting in Christ
alone for the Salvation of my soul and giving bread (Jesus) and water (Jesus) to those whom are sent to me.
3:28 "Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou
hast it by thee"
What is it that I have today? Bread and water (Salvation is of the Lord)
27:1 "Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day bring forth"
The Lord Jesus Christ taught me very early to live day by day with the desire to worship Him every
moment of my life.
Luke 12:22-23 "22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no
thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.23 The life is more than meat, and the
body than raiment"
Life is about trusting (faith) and worshiping the Lord Jesus Christ; knowing
the only and true God and Jesus Christ whom He has sent.
Exodus 34:14 "For thou shalt worship
no other god: for the LORD, whose name Jealous, a jealous God"
Psalm 81:9 "There shall no strange god
be in thee; neither shalt thou worship any strange god"
Matthew 4:1-11 "1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.2 And when
he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou
be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by
bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city,
and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is
written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash
thy foot against a stone.7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.8 Again, the devil
taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;9 And
saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get
thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.11 Then the devil
leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him"
Christ was tempted by Satan
with the physical world; the same today, many Christian are tempted to believe that they are children of God because they
are prospering (trusting) in the physical realm (money and health). Not God's chosen people; my blessings are spirituals:
I trust in Christ alone. I trust that He controls my life (His plan at work) peace that passeth all understanding and I have
been enjoying it for 29 yrs plus. Since He came into this house, He gave me this reality: today could be my last day in this
sinful world, a living hope that when that happens (depart from the body) I will be in His presence for evermore.
1:21 "For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain"
15:21-28 "21 Then Jesus went thence, and departed into the coasts of Tyre and Sidon.22 And, behold, a woman of Canaan
came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, Son of David; my daughter is grievously
vexed with a devil.23 But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for
she crieth after us.24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.25 Then came
she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me.26 But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and
to cast [it] to dogs.27 And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table.28
Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great [is] thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter
was made whole from that very hour"
This woman from Canaan worshipped Christ by crying out
"Lord, help me" It is the cry of a child of God.
Psalm 16:11 "Thou wilt shew me
the path of life: in thy presence fulness of joy; at thy right
hand pleasures for evermore"
The Lord Jesus Christ is the path of life, trusting in Him alone.

Psalm 89:7 "God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the

Psalm 100:4 "Enter into his gates with thanksgiving,

God, and I will praise thee: my God, I will exalt thee"

thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name"

upon the harp unto our God"
Isaiah 25:1 "O LORD, thou [art] my God; I will exalt
thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful counsels of old, faithfulness [and] truth"

forth all thy marvellous works"
Psalm 57:7 "My heart is fixed, O God, my
heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise"

60:18 "Violence shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy
walls Salvation, and thy gates Praise"
Land = The heart of God's chosen people
My heart is fixed trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ!
PRAISE THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!
