Bible Verse for Today
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. (John 4:23)
“True worshippers” worship God in spirit and in truth, this means not only speaking the truth to God but being truthful to one’s self. We can’t be fully honest with God until we are fully honest with ourselves.
A lot of the time we say, “Lord take me, I’m ready to come home.” Let me ask a question if Jesus were to come back right now how many of you believe without a doubt that you would be going back with Him? A lot of us believers are going to be quite surprised on that great getting up morning if we don’t get ourselves together.
Jesus is coming back for a church without a spot or blemish. We lie to ourselves when we say to God “I’m ready to go” while ignoring the fact that we still think it’s alright to gossip and tell so-called “little white lies”. We call ourselves “supporting our schools” when we buy lotto tickets and raffles with God’s money. When we have a “little” drink occasionally, just to “calm our nerves” or for other medicinal purposes.
When we continue to fall into sexual immorality, masturbation, and fornication because “God knows we had to stop our flesh from burning.” God is now telling His people to put away all these things and press toward the mark He has set for us. It’s pressing time!!
Let us stop lying to ourselves and to God, it’s useless anyway. Let’s “keep it real” with ourselves and God and ask Him to help us rid ourselves of every transgression so that we can best serve Him in the beauty of Holiness and the fullness of the spirit. IT’S PRESSING TIME!! God bless you all.
