10 As soon as it was night, the believers sent Paul and Silas away to Berea. On arriving there, they went to the Jewish synagogue. 11 Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. 12 As a result, many of them believed, as did also a number of prominent Greek women and many Greek men.
Acts 17:10-12 | NIV

God seeks men … when men are Seeking God – Part 4 of 8

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.”

John 4:23-24 | NIV

God definition

The supernatural being conceived as the perfect and omnipotent and omniscient originator and ruler of the universe.

How do you distinguish between : True vs. False Worshippers?

There is a qualification:

1. In spirit – The part of a human associated with the mind, will, and feelings. A pervasive or essential attitude, quality, or principle. An attitude marked by enthusiasm, energy, or courage. Temperament or disposition. From the heart, the inner self. The vital principle or animating force within living things. So we need to worship God in the right spirit. It’s like hanging out with someone. Is it a pleasant or bad experience? We also need God’s Spirit to worship through him. What is your attitude about seeking God? Is it positive? How serious are you about it? What priority does it fill in your life?

2. In truth – The quality of being true, genuine, actual, or factual. Something that is true as opposed to false. The Bible is truth. How well do you know the truth? Do you know God’s saving plan, he’s will for your life?

Amazing that God seeks us out. He wants a relationship with us.

Do you worship God in spirit and truth?

Psalm 94 – 96

“The LORD is a God who avenges. O God who avenges, shine forth.

“Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the LORD our Maker; for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice, “Do not harden your hearts as you did at Meribah, as you did that day at Massah in the wilderness,

Prayer for Today

Father shoe, You are God and what you decide stands. The Israelites kept going astray even while you showed them your miracles. In your oath you send them to hell because they did not want to repent. I had a vivid dream last night where I struggled, but God you are the one who works in our hearts to keep us close to You. Father being falsely accused is not nice, I dont know what it is like being falsely accused and being condemned to death because of it. It is like I said yesterday to the bus driver, there is situations in the world and then there is God. The the guy on God’s side will win in the end. Help me to cling to you and not see the waves of the sea going up and down. I am in your life jacket that will take me to the secluded island where God’s and His people live. Amen

What or who strenthens you ?

““Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but if the LORD is with us, why has all this happened to us? Where are all his wonders that our ancestors told us about when they said, ‘Did not the LORD bring us up out of Egypt?’ But now the LORD has abandoned us and given us into the hand of Midian.” 

  • Many a times we cause the difficult circumstances that makes us suffer (Pr 19:3) but then we blame it on God instead of repenting and doing God’s will.

The LORD turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?” 

  • Do I use the talents God has given me ?
  • We dont need super powers in ourselves but realize God will do it through us.

“Pardon me, my lord,” Gideon replied, “but how can I save Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my family.” The LORD answered, “I will be with you, and you will strike down all the Midianites, leaving none alive.”” – ‭‭Judges‬ ‭6:13-16‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  • We doubt ourselves whether we can do it.
  • If God is with us, we can accomplish anything, because nothing is impossible with God.

Do you see being humble as a good thing ?

“Until a humility which will rest in nothing less than the end and death of self; which gives up all the honour of men as Jesus did, to seek the honour that comes from God alone; which absolutely makes and counts itself nothing, that God may be all, that the Lord alone may be exalted,—until such a humility be what we seek in Christ above our chief joy, and welcome at any price, there is very little hope of a religion that will conquer the world” – Andrew Murray
