John 4:22-24 (KJV); Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Worship is a revelation. One of the aspects of this revelation is who you worship.
In our theme scripture, Jesus tells the Samaritan woman, “Ye worship what ye know not.” It means that they had no revelation of the God whom they worshipped.
Christ further explains the primary understanding you must have when it comes to worship.
He says, “God is a Spirit, and they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth.”
This means that there can never be true worship until you understand the nature of God as a spirit. What we do in the flesh is not what moves Him but what we do in the spirit.
Sometimes, people think that when they sing so loud or dance so hard, then that ultimately defines what worship is. If your dancing and singing in the physical realm does not have an expression in the spirit realm, it is not worship. He says in 1 Corinthians 15:50 that flesh and blood cannot glory in His presence.
True worship starts from the spirit realm. This is only possible when you understand that the God you worship is a spirit. Without this understanding, you do not know who you worship.
Continuously carry this consciousness because it defines true worship.

GOLDEN NUGGET: There can never be true worship until you understand the nature of God as a spirit. What we do in the flesh is not what moves Him but what we do in the spirit.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this truth. I receive a deeper revelation of worship. I know that worship is about more than what I do in my body. My every act of worship finds expression in the spirit and is as sweet-smelling incense unto You my king. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
