This verse is taken from the story about when Jesus met the woman of Samaria at the well. This is a long passage, which goes into a lot of detail about the interaction between Jesus and this unnamed Samaria woman. She ends up spreading the message that Jesus is the expected Messiah, and she in turn gets other Samaritans to come to Jesus and believe in him.
Jesus talks to her about how her ancestors worshiped would be different that he was now here. That they would not worship their Lord on a holy mountain, nor in Jerusalem, but the worship would be in spirit and truth. That God was a spirit and had to be worshiped differently. On our spiritual pilgrimage, we can worship God in most anyplace, but according to this passage, because God is a spirit, our worship is to be done from our spiritual side and in truth! Vernon T.
Prayer: God of spirit, may my worship and praise to you be done in spirit and in truth!
