WEIGHING OUR WORSHIP

Jn. 4:22-24

22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. (KJV)

22 Vosotros adoráis lo que no sabéis; nosotros adoramos lo que sabemos; porque la salvación viene de los judíos. (RVG04)

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (KJV)

23 Mas la hora viene, y ahora es, cuando los verdaderos adoradores adorarán al Padre en espíritu y en verdad; porque también el Padre tales adoradores busca que le adoren. (RVG04)

24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. (KJV)

24 Dios es Espíritu; y los que le adoran, en espíritu y en verdad es necesario que adoren. (RVG04)

God is jealous for the worship of man.

Isa. 42:8

8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (KJV)

8 Yo Jehová; éste es mi nombre; y a otro no daré mi gloria, ni mi alabanza a esculturas. (RVG04)

Isa. 48:11

11 For mine own sake, even for mine own sake, will I do it: for how should my name be polluted? and I will not give my glory unto another. (KJV)

11 Por mí, por amor de mí mismo lo haré, para que no sea amancillado mi nombre, y mi honra no la daré a otro. (RVG04)

Mt. 4:10

10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. (KJV)

10 Entonces Jesús le dijo: Vete, Satanás, que escrito está: Al Señor tu Dios adorarás, y a Él sólo servirás. (RVG04)

True Worship:

1. Is a matter of will. If someone obligates you to offer worship, can it really be called worship?

2. It requires decisions on our part and it includes sacrifices at times.

Ro. 12:1,2

1 ¶ I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. (KJV)

1 Por tanto, os ruego hermanos por las misericordias de Dios, que presentéis vuestros cuerpos en sacrificio vivo, santo, agradable a Dios, que es vuestro culto racional. (RVG04)

2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (KJV)

2 Y no os conforméis a este mundo; mas transformaos por la renovación de vuestra mente, para que comprobéis cuál sea la buena voluntad de Dios, agradable y perfecta. (RVG04)

3. It must be genuine and from the heart.

Jn. 4:23,24

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. (KJV)

23 Mas la hora viene, y ahora es, cuando los verdaderos adoradores adorarán al Padre en espíritu y en verdad; porque también el Padre tales adoradores busca que le adoren. (RVG04)
