Scripture of the Day - July 3, 2012

John 4:24  God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

We usually only think of worship as raising our hands and singing but worship goes deeper than that. Worship is trusting God. Worship is humbling yourself and obeying God. Abraham and Isaac went to 'worship' God up on the mountain, and we all know they weren't going up there to sing and clap hands. I and the lad will go yonder and worship, and come again to you. Genesis 22:5 Abraham trusted God and proved his trust by following through with the command to sacrifice Issac. Some how, some way, he knew that God would even raise Issac from the dead if it came to that. Hebrews 11:19 But it didn't...as soon as Abraham reached for that knife the angel of the Lord stopped him and said 'now I know that you fear God' Genesis 22:12. You see, Abraham worshiped God in spirit and in truth. His wasn't just lip service. He proved his trust. He proved his obedience and he was blessed greatly for it.
