Dear Sisters and Brothers,As Jesus began to speak to the Samaritan woman about the heart of worship and not the ritual I believe her heart began transforming at that very moment. A couple of years ago the Lord directed me to come and worship Him before the altar. Although it felt strange, my life has never been the same since that act of obedience took place. All ritual worship disappeared as the presence of the Living God was manifested in our midst. Let us not confuse The Worship of our God with our ritualistic beliefs. He is looking for true worshipers and they that worship Him must do so in Spirit and in Truth!!!
God Bless You,
Apostle Brenda D. Cooper
““Sir,” the woman said, “I can see that you are a prophet. Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” “Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.””
John 4:19-24 NIV
