John 4:23-24

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

Many do not see how worship and truth are blended together. Some view them as polar opposites. Yet, in truth, both are blended together to please the Father. Worship is our response to the truth of God. Truth of God is found in one place alone: the Word of God. If we do not have a mind for truth, we will not experience the fullness of our relationship with God. Worship is not based on how I feel but on who God is. He never changes, thus, is always worthy of praise. The more I know truth, which is from and is the Word of God, the more I will experience in my relationship with God. He sent His Son to die on our behalf so we may experience a relationship with God. For our relationship to grow we must worship in spirit and truth. In all that God has done for us, our response is a lifestyle of worship. Worship is not just singing. Worship is not just Sunday mornings. Worship is responding to the truth of God’s Word. To grow in the truth of the Word, is to grow in worship.

Worship is our response to experiencing God daily through the truth of His Word applied to the reality of our lives. Corporate worship is the celebration of what God has done in our lives and the equipping of truth for what He will do through our lives. Worship and truth blend together beautifully. We cannot fully have one without the other.
