John 4

Jesus said to her, "Woman, believe Me,
an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father. 22 "You worship what you do not know ; we worship what we know, for salvation is from the Jews. 23 "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 "God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

To worship in spirit and truth.


To worship in spirit and truth?

Well, truth ought to speak in love. Love is patient, kind, does not envy or boast, does not seek its own way or keep a record of wrong ...

So keeping a record of wrong, seeking one's own way, being boastful or envious, unkind or simply impatient means a lack of love.

Without love, truth cannot fully be expressed and without truth, the spirit does not worship God, so it must but idolizing self..
