Worship in Spirit & Truth

This week we’ve focused on worship through our YouVersion Bible reading plan and barre workout together. While our worship can encompass so much of our lives and our relationship with the Lord and others, let’s focus on John 4:22-24 when Jesus speaks with the women at the well about what is to come. The NLT version might sound more familiar, but I love how Christ’s words are presented in The Message translation.

“But the time is coming—it has, in fact, come—when what you’re called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. It’s who you are and the way you live that count before God. Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That’s the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration.” – Jesus

John 4:23-24 MSG

What freedom Jesus provides in that we can worship and connect with Him anywhere at any time! We can worship Him in any season and give Him all our emotions and experiences – the good, the bad, and the ugly! All He desires is that we bring Him our true selves, our spirit and soul, our heart and mind, engaged in His truth.

This beautifully ties to the Armor of God with the first piece being the belt of truth. Through Holy Barre, we keep our core engaged with the belt of truth wrapped tightly around our waist. We chose daily to worship and be ready for battle.

If worship is incorporated in all we do, what does that look like? How can we worship in spirit and truth at home? at work? in our marriage? in our parenting? as we run errands or do chores? in our friendships? in our church? in Holy Barre?

We get to dance to the rhythms of His grace while we stand firmly on holy ground! We worship in joy, peace, pain, frustration, love . . . because of and founded in the Spirit and Truth of Jesus! Join us as we workout and worship and burn bright in Spirit and Truth together!
