Just what is worship and how should we worship the Creator God?
True worship begins with a deep respect or reverence for God, from the heart, or an attitude of Reverence which is the reason we should never use the word reverend as a title to any man. Worship is an "act" proceeding from or the result of that attitude of understanding who God is and what He is doing concerning the future for all mankind. Worship occurs after Jesus and the Holy Father has introduced Themselves in such deep spiritual ways that you could do nothing but worship Them. Jesus commanded we worship the Holy Father in spirit and in truth and Jesus added that the Holy Father is seeking such to worship Him. I find that statement very profound. Is He your friend, or do you seek Him only when you want or need something? Some people use God as a genie but He is not, nor does He want to be a genie that comes out when we call so we can ask for some gift, or to get us out of trouble. The important point to understand is that God wants a relationship with those that will come to Him. But we must never lose site of Who God is. We must never take Him for granted or come to think of Him on the same level as we are. God is as stated above The KING of all kings.
The Apostle Paul was stating that this kind of religion is a religion Of men and By men and has no Power whatsoever to take anyone near the Holy Father in order to get to know the Holy Father in Spirit and in Truth therefore by way of "Religion" we are NOT able to come to the Holy Father and worship Him. If we can't even come into the presence of the Holy Father through the blood sacrifice of Jesus the Lamb by way of religion then how can we even receive the spiritual knowledge needed in a relationship?
Many if not all churches in religion places some kind of object or ritualistic Type ceremony or ritualistic type Task before the congregation making them believe if they do not go to a certain place at a certain time worshipping in the temple of men's choosing then they will not receive salvation. These men sitting in the seat of the true most holy high Priest actually turns people away from the ability to have a real relationship with the Holy Father in Spirit and in Truth. We can feel love and GREAT awe as well as Appreciation for all God has shown us during true worship. So many people in this world would feel complete awe and appreciation if they found themselves in the presence of a favorite actor in Hollywood or some other reverence person such as the queen of England. How much more do you think you could possibly feel if you found yourself Truly and Absolutely in the Presence of the Most Holy Father that is the Spirit of Truth which has created all things and all things are sustained by the very presence of the Spirit of Truth?
How would you feel knowing that you're in the presence of the very being that Creates Life itself and gives wonderful Gifts of Knowledge that cannot even be learned or understood without the Authority and direction of the Almighty Creator. There is nothing in creation Greater than being in His presence and having the Holy Father introduce Himself which is actually an action that takes Eternity to complete. Worship comes as a RESPONSE to even understanding such great Awesome things. Forget about all the pettiness of religion brethren and seek the One Who is seeking you to come to Him in Spirit and Truth. Go to your private place and Diligently in all sincerity ask Jesus to wash you with His blood Sacrifice and Guide you directly into the Bosom of our Holy Father.
