Spirit and Truth

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” John 4:24, KJV

There are many churches that focus on truth and yet their spirit is cold. Not only are there many cold churches, but there are also those whose spirit is on fire but water down doctrinal truth for popularity:

“For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge.” Romans 10:2

The message is that God’s people must focus on the truth of God’s word and allow the truth to purify their hearts through faith. The truth may not always be popular by the standards of this world, but God’s people will hear the voice of Jesus and follow his commands:

“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me” John 10:27
