“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.”
John 4:23

This incredible scripture was first opened to me in Colombia, South America. I was feeling lonely for my Norma when I suddenly awakened to the fact that God, too, can know a certain kind of loneliness – where He also yearns for those He loves. I sensed Him saying to me, “I am so personal that it is as if I only had you to care for. I’m noticing you 24 hours a day, yet you spend so little time noticing Me or talking to Me. I am lonely for your love, Frank.” I have never been the same!

Think of it! God Himself is seeking worshippers. That is nothing less than a holy God looking for those who will love Him with heart, soul, mind and strength. God is love and so He is self-sustaining. He doesn’t need our love to exist or survive – yet He wants your love because:

  1. He is a Person, not an “It”, thereby enjoying the loving affection,appreciation and adoration of His children and
  2. He knows that it is only as we love Him in total worship that we understand the “exceeding abundantly above all” (Ephesians 3:20) reality and purpose of God in our lives.

Our Father of love is seeking lovers – you and me. But since He is Spirit, we must learn to worship Him with our spirit – and this requires discipline. Soulish worship is dependent upon circumstances and feelings, but true spiritual worship is built on a love relationship that is not dependent upon the exterior. The Shepherd has sought you out as His sheep. Now our loving Father seeks you out as a worshipper – a true lover of God. Will you answer the longing of His heart – beginning now?

My Prayer

“I say ‘Yes!’ to Your seeking heart, my Father. Please work in my life until You are satisfied that I am a true worshipper and lover of You.”

We invite YOU to have a part of the action with us.
