Worship in Truth

The hour is coming, and is here now, when the faithful will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for such are those the Father seeks to worship him.  ~ the Gospel of John 4:23

Truth, truth… “What is truth?” asked Pontius Pilate — a question we still pursue. Is it true that “Jesus died for your sins”? or did He die because of them? Perhaps the truth of our sinful nature was revealed by his death on the cross when everyone ran away. No one took a stand against injustice, no one spoke against the “authorities,” no one claimed to know Him; no one told the truth until it was too late: “This truly was the son of God” (Mk 15.39).

How shall we worship God in spirit and in truth?
