But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth. (John 4:23-24 NASB)
You have heard of the Now and Not Yet of the kingdom of God? Larry Nevenhoven (aka Larry Who – larrywho.wordpress.com) in his book Where’s the Kingdom of God? (I highly recommend this booklet. You can get it at Amazon.com) talks about the fact that the Kingdom of God is both now and not yet, and how important it is for us to discern between the now parts and the not yet parts.
This is not that.
This is also not the favorable year of the Lord.
This is not even the day of the Lord.
We are talking hours here.
He looks this woman in the eye, and says “an hour is coming, and now is.” In other words – GET READY!
He looks in her eyes like no man has ever looked in her eyes before, and says things are changing right here and right now. This is your time.
What has for all your life been a religious practice, a formality (maybe even a travesty) is coming out of the box – breaking out from behind the curtain – the rules are changing – right here – right now.
Get ready to know what love is, and worship up close and personal.
Are you ready for this today?
Has your life been full or religion, but missing the void of the lover of your soul.
Jesus says this to you today.
The hour is coming – in fact – it’s here.
Worship Jesus today!
See you tomorrow.
