” But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him”
Over three years ago, I heard a statement that has really challenged me. Ever since I have heard that statement, I’ve always pondered on it.
This was what the person said;
“We no longer serve God again, it is now God who is now serving us”
If you and I will meditate deeply on this statement, you will discover that there is a sincere truth in this word.
This days, we now serve God with terms and conditions, God if you don’t give me this I will not go to church again, God if you don’t do that, I will not even pray again, give offering or pay my tithe, we even go as far as giving Him deadline, Lord, if you don’t meet my needs before the end of this week, this month, bla bla. That means you can’t do it. Beloveth, if you find yourself in this category, make a firm decision to repent from them today.
Let me tell you this fact, either you pray or you don’t pray God still remains God. You go to church or you don’t go to church, God still remains God and He will never change and He can never change because of you.
Some will say God is doing different things days, it is not Him doing different things this days; it is we that are doing different things. Haven’t you heard Nathaniel Bassey’s song,
“you are God from beginning to the end
There is no place for argument
You are God all by yourself”.
Serving God with terms and conditions will never get us anywhere, if you want to go far with Him, you must worship Him in spirit and in truth.
Everything God has put together in His word, it is for our own good, it is for the well-being and prosperity of our body, soul and spirit. When He tells us to do something, He is only showing us the way so that we can be blessed.
2 Timothy 3:16
” All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness”
So don’t ever think you are doing God favour by obeying His commandments or by doing His will. He just wanted us to prosper in many ways.
When we seek and worship God, let us not do it because of what He will do for us rather let us worship and honour Him for who He is.
Let our mode of worship and services come from our hearts, not because of what God will do for us or because of what He will give us.
Let’s serve this God with no terms and conditions attached to it, making a firm and unshakable decision for Him, saying Lord I trust your faithfulness, that no matter what, you will still remain The Lord of my life, do this and see how God will move on your behalf.
Beloveth, it pays to serve God, it pays to worship Him, it pays to Honour Him, because when the experience of God comes upon you, terms and conditions doesn’t matters anymore, nothing in this world will mean anything to you again, you will just want to worship Him anywhere because of who He is.
My dear friends, God is still looking for true worshipers, those who will worship Him in spirit and in Truth. Will You Be The One?
God bless you.
