Worshiping the Lord Spiritually

Jesus told the Samaritan woman that the Father is seeking worshipers who worship in spirit and truth. This is virtually the 2nd commandment in New Testament form, and it gives us truckloads of instruction on what true worship is. It is difficult to think of anything more relevant than this. There are so-called "worship wars" going on right now, and for good reason. Worship is at the heart of everything. Worship drives missions and our evangelistic efforts. Worship drives culture in all of its manifold expressions. Worship drives the economy. Worship is at the heart of everything. Therefore, it is very important that we understand not only who we worship, but also how we worship. This is exactly what the 2nd commandment deals with. Join us as we strive to worship in spirit and truth!
