It Shouldn't Be A High Wire Act


"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 Him in spirit and in truth" (Jn.4:24).

We have all seen and read today's verses. I will take a bit of a different view of them today.. The world puts so much emphasis on the external, that it is driven by it. Just look at the commercials on TV. Almost all the products they shill are about external things like the right car, clothes, cleaning products and foods. One of the ways that we sometimes get unbalanced is when we put too much credibility on actions. When we do this, we run the risk of neglecting to work on the inner spirit that ought to motivate those actions... Perhaps the reason this happens is that the external things are easier to get at and get right. The scriptures teach this: What God wants, primarily, is our heart. If our inner character is not lined up with His character, then our outward actions can be almost meaningless. Today's verses tell us that without question, the truth of our actions is important --- but so is the spirit... Pondering this, as the Lord's people, lets be sure to work on actually being more balanced. We should not view our lives as a 'high wire act..." Tomorrow we'll look at our responsibilities from a slightly different viewpoint, so we can have a more balanced understanding...

Have a great day... Make your little part of the world better... Love mark Phil.4:11
