I was reminded again today of a marvelous benefit we receive when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. That benefit is the ability to worship God. I think this privilege is often taken for granted. We forget that worshiping God is part of the “so great a salvation.” (Hebrews 2:3)”
Only people that are reborn in Jesus can worship God; worship is impossible for an unsaved person. We know this from: “And you, who were dead in your trespasses…” Colossians 2:13
Spiritually dead people are unable to worship God. Only when we are spiritually alive do we have the right and ability to commune with God because “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24
So, let’s rejoice in this blessing and let’s worship our God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and let’s not forget that we can only worship God “in truth.” This means two things. We must have Truth (i.e., Jesus) alive in us, and we must worship God in ways that the Bible teaches us. We must be on guard and stand against any form of worship contrary to the Scriptures.
