John 4:24 Meaning:

To know God is to understand the meaning of John 4:24.

What is true worship? True worship is fixing our eyes, heart and mind on our Father God!  He should be the only one who gets this kind of worship in our lives.

John 4:24 God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” says: “True worship is the acknowledgment of God and all His power and glory in everything we do”. 

Why should we do this? 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 This is God’s will.  This is what He wants from His children, not for His benefit but for ours.  We need to do this in order to worship God.

 John Piper writes, “True worship comes only from spirits made alive and sensitive by the quickening of the Spirit of God”.

God’s Spirit ignites and energizes our spirit to keep ourselves connected to Him continually.  He is our creator and Father.  We need Him in our lives 24/7.  He is our only constant friend and help.  There is nobody else as important than God in our lives. Worshiping Him is the KEY to our great relationship with Him and the KEY to walking with Him.

Wes McAdams from writes: “What Does it Mean to Worship in Spirit and Truth? Hopefully, the answer is clear by now. The Spirit in whom we worship is the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus has given to those who believe in him. And the truth in which we worship is the identity of Jesus as the Son of God.”   John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

Tanya Nemley’s explanation: God is not confined or constricted by a physical body because He is invisible and Spirit. God gave us a spirit too, along with a physical body in which we are limited.  In order for us to be in contact with Him for worship, we must do so in the spirit!

It is an incredible thing that we can worship God supernaturally. The Holy Spirit takes up residence in us when we become a Christian.  Every human is a soul and has a spirit inside their body. This body will cease to live one day but our spirit will live on. So you can see that we are uniquely made.

If you are not a Christian the Holy Spirit tries to connect with you and get you to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior so that you can have a relationship with God.

If you are a Christian and want to worship God, you must connect your spiritual self to His Spirit. This must be done in truth which is through your knowledge and acceptance of Jesus Christ in your life.

This is how it is with no exceptions: God the Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit, and you. The trinity and you! In John 4:24 the way to worship God and be deeply involved spiritually with Him is very clearly stated.  We worship God in spirit and truth.  God must be worshipped.   This is why He created us.

Where are God’s worshipers? Are you a worshipper?

John 4:24 is one of the greatest scriptures after John 3:16 because it tells you who God is and how to connect to Him!!!  WORSHIP GOD!
