NO SPECIAL RITUALS, WORDS OR CEREMONIES
Q: HOW SHOULD I WORSHIP GOD?
"GOD is a Spirit: and they that worship HIM must worship HIM in spirit and in truth." (Jn. 4:24).
There has been a lot of arguing about what is GOD'S real name and what is the right way to worship GOD. Some religions teach that you are not really worshiping GOD unless you use their words and follow their rules and ceremonies: the truth is:
If you believe in and worship GOD, HE knows. (Ps. 139:23)
If you believe there is only One GOD, HE knows. (Dt. 6:4, Is. 45:5)
If you believe GOD is Almighty, and there is no other power but HIS, HE knows. (Gen. 35:11, Rom. 13:1)
It doesn't matter what type of building you worship in. (Acts 17:24)
It doesn't matter what time of day or what day of the week you choose to worship. (Rom. 14:5)
It doesn't matter what ceremony or words you use to worship. (Col. 2:16)
Jesus tells us we can even close ourselves in our closet and pray to GOD. (Mat. 6:6)
There is no special ritual, words or ceremonies to perform while worshiping GOD ALMIGHTY. The truth is, GOD is Almighty and GOD knows if you are worshiping HIM in truth. GOD listens to your heart. (Ps. 44:21, Pa. 139:23). GOD knows your thoughts. (Ps. 44:21)
Don't worry if you're calling GOD the right name, for HE has many. Don't worry if you are worshiping HIM the right way. No matter how you have come to worship HIM or what you were taught to call HIM, HE is so Almighty HE knows what's in your heart and HE knows if you are a true believer.
" And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free" (Jn. 8:32)
