Happy Clapping Praise Songs….

John 4:19-24
“The woman said to him, ‘Sir, I see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshipped on this mountain, but you say that the place where people must worship is in Jerusalem.’ Jesus said to her, ‘Woman, believe me, the hour is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You worship what you do not know; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.’”

What is true worship?

What does it mean to worship in spirit?

What does it mean to worship in truth?

God’s desire is for us to worship him…why? Because God needs it? No…because God knows that we need it.

True worship is something you have to find for yourself. You have to be open to how God connects with you whether it be in praise music or The Lord’s Prayer.  Find some time to try out different forms of worship and see which one you need.

One thought on “Happy Clapping Praise Songs….

  1. When I was reading a few psalms tonight, I thought of this post. Psalm 100 says, “worship The Lord with gladness.” That is true worship to me. It’s about being focused on god deeply and truly with one’s whole heart. Ironically, “worship” at church is not an easy time for me to do this because I tend to get distracted.
