Title: Worship in Spirit and Truth, Labor for the Kingdom
John 4:24 (KJV) "God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth."
Throughout history, God has been actively seeking two types of believers: worshippers and laborers. He desires worshippers who resonate with Him in spirit and truth, recognizing the purity and the depth of His love. Simultaneously, He seeks those willing to go out into the world, working and laboring for His Kingdom. This duality of worship and work is essential in our Christian journey, fulfilling our purpose and aligning ourselves with His divine plan.
