Worship in Spirit and Truth?
Mar 15, 2020 Season 2 Episode 20
Fr. Brian, Lent 3

From Hurricanes to Coronavirus, there is one thing that I have learned.  We have very little power to help ourselves.  

“the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father seeks such as these to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:23-24

 But what does this mean?  Isn’t that what we are doing when we pray, when we worship, when we do all these things that define our faith?  And if it isn’t then why do we do all this anyway?

 Maybe, but maybe not.  

 What happens when you do all the right things and then still get sick?  What happens when the prayer vigils are held, and disaster still strikes?  Does your soul get stifled? Are you left with doubt that shakes or shatters your faith?  Do wonder what happened, because surely God should have…

How do we know we are worshiping in spirit and in truth?  Because the Peace of God rules our heart and our minds.  

Because we know He is our God and believe we are His people and the world around us begins to see Jesus through us His Church.  

And to this the glory due His name is always given.  In the good, the bad, and ugly. Amen.
