“Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, and you Jews say that in Jerusalem is the place where one ought to worship.” Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, the hour is coming when you will neither on this mountain, nor in Jerusalem, worship the Father. You worship what you do not know; we know what we worship, for salvation is of the Jews. But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”
-The Samaritan woman alleges that they used to worship on a mountain; probably mount Gerizim in Samaria where Jacobs well is located & Jews worshipped in Jerusalem. Mountains, trees & other physical features have over time been common places of worship all over the world. According to these worshipers beliefs; God dwells there. This notation attempts to places a limit to Gods’ omnipresent nature & causes doubt in ones mind on the existence of the Holy Spirit in our hearts. Apostle Paul in 2 Cor 1:21-22; reminds us to have faith in Christ Who has anointed us, set His seal of ownership on us & put His Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee of what is to come. The act of worship to God can therefore be done anywhere & at anytime as one is guided by the Holy Spirit; in spirit & truth.
Jehovah Elohim; we thank You for Your Omnipresent nature which has given us the liberty to worship You from anywhere & at any time. Help us Holy Spirit to always worship You in spirit & in truth; & intercede for us in times when we do not know how to pray. Nothing can separate us from Your love everlasting Father, we praise Your name. Guide us today in all we do, provide for those who are starving & dying of hunger, protect all those who live in war torn areas & give shelter to all the displaced. Your love satisfies us every day, we thank You for all things. Amen
