“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” (John 4: 24)
God is Spirit. He consists of spiritual qualities, eternally right and infinitely expressed. We worship Him, obey Him, discover the truth of His grace, when we recognize and love the qualities that are His. We do not worship Him rightly if we think of Him as a mighty man in the sky, or even as some celestial being that has human reactions and limited capacities for understanding, power, and goodness.
We must worship God rightly. As we love Love, so do we love God and all that He is. As we listen for and practice this true and pure love, so are we obeying God, being true to Him, and thus knowing Him even better. There is nothing limited about our Father-Mother. His presence transcends geography and time. His Principle is not swayed by praise or blame. It stands certain and right and changeless in its unopposed reign over all things.
We must worship God “in truth.” We must come before Him, knowing He is Truth, Life, and Love, and be honest with Him and with ourselves. We must be true to who we really are by knowing Who He really is—the Father and nature of all that is real. We must and can come to feel His presence by knowing His character—limitless, active, tender, powerful, spiritual Love.
