The True Worshippers
21 “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. 22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. 24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”
All over the world, people are worshipping. What they could be worshipping depends on their country, their belief system and their socio-economic level. There could be different ‘gods’ that they are worshipping or maybe certain addictions like money, drugs, sex or self. There could be many things that people will worship and they do not even know it. Jesus was saying to this Samaritan woman that they worship what they do not know.
To me, it would be troubling to worship what I do not know. Millions of people actually do this. I do this on a daily basis without knowing it when I am not fixing my eyes on God Almighty. I am worshipping the things on the world if I am not taking the time to worship God. God is seeking the true worshippers, where I can find the truth and follow the truth.
