A Call to Worship: Part Three



May 18, 2022


John 4:19 (KJV)

19 "The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet."


I don’t know how this scripture presents itself to you, but I think it’s interesting to notice that as soon as she perceived Jesus was a prophet, she starts asking questions that seem to have no answers. But Jesus was making a point, “you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father.”


In David Gukiz's commentary he says:


“Our fathers worshipped on this mountain: It is possible that this was a genuine source of confusion and a stumbling block to her, but it is more likely that this simply was an evasion, trying to avoid the issue of her many prior husbands and her current non-husband.


"If she offered an argument about places of worship here, Jesus didn’t take the bait. Jesus was more interested in winning a soul than in winning an argument.”


So, are we stand in the same place but only in a different time frame discussing where we may worship and not who we worship? For the next two days we will take a closer look at what is "praise" and what is "worship."


For now we will say that praise is thanking God for what He has done for us. Worship is the art of losing one's self in our adoration for God our Father.


We thank You, Father, for giving us a way out of our sins, and we are looking forward to the things that You have planned for us in the present and for our future. In Jesus's name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
