“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him” John 4:23.
We seek things we value. I had a contractor make a trip to my house this morning to ask if we had found a particular water bottle. On the other hand, I’ve messaged a different contractor twice about a rusty, cracked shovel he left last fall that is still here. He doesn’t value it enough to stop by.
We know what God values because we’re told He is seeking true worshipers—those who “will worship the Father in spirit and truth.” And, from Jesus’ parables in Luke 15 about the lost coin, lost sheep, and lost son, we know with what intensity and ferocity of love God seeks that which He values.
Often, we see the rusty and cracked condition we’re in and, because we don’t value ourselves, we can’t imagine that God could possibly value us enough to seek us. Or, we see how ordinary we are, such as a water bottle, and can’t see how we could be special enough for God to seek us. But, if we will be true worshipers, worshiping Him in spirit and truth, then the Father seeks us.
Are you a true worshiper that God seeks?
