Devotional of the Week June 8-14

John 4: 21-26

"Jesus saith unto her, 'Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 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.'
The woman saith unto him, 'I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things.'
Jesus saith unto her, 'I that speak unto thee am he.'"

Are you feeling confused about your worship? Are you unsure of where to worship, how to worship, and when to worship? Are you church hopping, looking for the "perfect" church? They have a saying (and I paraphrase), "when you find the perfect church do not join it because it would not be perfect anymore." Instead of trying to look at the externals of worship to fulfill us, such as our church affiliations, congregation size, church activities and programs, we should rather look to God Himself to come inside of us and fill our hearts with His presence. Only a true and close relationship with our heavenly Father can fill the hunger within our souls for a meaningful worship experience.
