When Worship & Sincerity clash!
It just does not matter what you worship as long as you are sincere.
The Bible defines correct and incorrect human behavior, it is to be as God instructs.
Without exception, all mankind worships.
He who owns your time and thoughts owns your worship.
The intention to worship is simply natural, it is God implanted.
Competitors and schemes to worship are far too many to count. This would be an impossible folly to attempt.
Three verses to guide the habit of worship:
- God is spirit, and His worship is in spirit and in truth. (John 4:24)
- The Lord is near to all who call on Him, to all who call on Him in truth. (Psalm 145:18)
- You (Israel) saw no form ... you saw no form of any kind the day the Lord spoke to you at Horeb out of the fire. (Deuteronomy 4:13 & 15)
True worship is not in form but in spirit.
Without the truth of Jesus, as applied and taught by the Holy Spirit of Truth, sincere worship is of no avail at all.
Who or what a man may worship is not the main issue, the only acceptable worship resides with spirit and truth.
There is no salvation in sincerity.
