The Search For True Worshippers

“God is Spirit: and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.” – John 4:24

A.W. Tozer said the following, “Worship is the missing jewel in modern evangelicalism. We are organized, we work, and we have our agencies. We have almost everything, but there’s one thing that the churches, even the gospel churches, do not have: that is the ability to worship. We are not cultivating the art of worship. It is the shining gem that is lost to the modern church, and I believe that we should search for it until we find it.”

The depth of true worship is something every Christian should desire. We should long for a fresh personal encounter with God. When we get tired of the mundane, routine, boring and shallow worship services, we will move toward experiencing in a fresh new way the great and powerful God whom we serve. The good news is that we can experience God in a deep and intimate way. However, we are not alone in our quest. Even The Lord Himself is searching for those who will come before Him unashamedly and prostrate their hearts, spirits, souls and bodies before Him in true worship. He has such depth for us to experience throughout our Christian journey if we would heed His call for true worshippers.

God created us as triune beings with a spirit, a soul, and a body. God desires for us to acknowledge His worth, not only from our soulish and physical selves, but also from our spiritual selves. It is from our spirit that true worship will emanate. We can be insincere with out emotions and we can put on a good physical act in the church, but when our spirit is in tune with God’s spirit we are able to offer pure and fragrant worship unto God. Our spirit becomes very sensitive to God. This is the part of us that is regenerated when we accept Christ into our hearts as our Lord and Savior. Our bodies remain essentially the same, still fleshly. Our emotions and personality can still experience fluxes. However, the more we starve the flesh and feed the spirit, the stronger the spirit becomes.
