Topic: UNRAVELING THE MYSTERY OF WORSHIP.
Text: John 4:23,24.
23: But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Glory to God who gives us inspiration daily. The propelling force within a man drives his life to a particular direction, and the determinant of the direction is the propeller itself.
It will surprise you to know that their 3 propelling forces in every man; and one of them takes preeminence over the other, they are as follows;
1, THE BODY/FLESH; this is the commonest propelling force. A lot of people living according to the dictates of their flesh. This is usually reaction to the situation and circumstances around you based on how your body feel. Time will fail me to expatiate this here, I will do a detailed teaching on this later. This is where sin emanates from, it’s the body that desires things, the body reacts to visible things, environment. Anyone who takes decisions by the feelings of his body is prone to many mistakes.
This is the reason many people enter into wrong relationships, many people have gotten married based on their feelings for someone, the forgot or probably didn’t know that feelings is temporary. Your body grows through feeding and exercise.
2, THE MIND: this is another propelling force, it is deceptive because it can easily be influenced by the feelings of your body or probably by the environment. How many times have somethings bothered your mind, but you later find out that are not true and you just worried for nothing. The mind grows by knowledge and that is the reason why we go to school. Your mind can also be influenced by your spirit.
3 THE (YOUR) SPIRIT. The is the strongest propelling force in every human being. Even occultic people don’t take decisions without consulting their oracles, when things are tough they consult oracles, while many believers take sensitive decisions without consulting the Holy Spirit. Spirit only relates to spirit, your spirit don’t respond to the environment or circumstances but to spiritual things.
Have you ever noticed that sometimes you are just happy, not because you made money or you got a gift, you’re just excited for no tangible reason, it’s most likely that your spirit is feeling good about something good coming your way which your physical eyes can’t see.
Let me give you scriptural passage to prove my point here;
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. KJV. Flesh is the body.
19: For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. ESV. This is the state of taking decisions by the dictates of the flesh (body)
22: For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being. KJV Inner being is your spirit.
23: But I discern in my bodily members [in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh] a different law (rule of action) at war against the law of my mind (my reason) and making me a prisoner to the law of sin that dwells in my bodily organs [in the sensitive appetites and wills of the flesh]. Amplified. Can you see here that your mind can easily be influenced by feelings of your body?
You hear someone say, ‘ I have feelings for him/her I can’t do without him/her ‘, it’s simply because the feelings has taken over the person’s mind.
But your spirit can only be influenced by another spirit, of course, you should know that any other spirit apart from the Holy Spirit will lead your life in the wrong direction.
As you engage in regular worship divine direction becomes inevitable in your life, this is because the Holy Spirit will captivate your spirit to take right decisions in your mind. In the next part I will talk about the operations of God by His Spirit. God bless you.
* Lord propel my life by your Spirit to fulfil destiny in the name of Jesus.
