    No matter which spiritual or religious system we follow there are some basic principles fof worship that when followed will make worships the Supreme Being in spirit and in truth.

    1. Understand that God is everywhere, not just in a particular kind of building or with a particular group of people on a particular day of the week. No matter the who, the where or the when we can be aware enough of God's presence to just stop, center and exalt his majesty over and in the face of all circumstances.

    2. Understand that everything we do and say brings glory or derision to the God we serve. Why go to a certain place, raise our hands and say "Oh great Creator, I worship you, the Supreme All who has given life and your name is above the stars, Oh mighty Ophekotemunabhudinkin" then in our normal everyday life live and act as if we never heard of the cat? Let our worship be a living worship--a verb, not an interjection separated from life by an explanation point.

    We worship God by practicing

    LOVE
    GRACE
    HUMILITY
    MERCY
    KINDNESS
    JUSTICE
    PATIENCE
    JOY
    PEACE

    Especially towards those we'd rather hate.

    AMEN!


    John.4

    [23] But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
    [24] God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

    I understand this and agree; our actions from day to day show whether we are truly faithful or simply pretending for those around us at certain times.

    For those who say they are faithful to the Father through the faith of the One who sacrificed His Body for us on the tree, and who was resurrected from the dead, cleansing us from our iniquity and bringing us to eternal life and salvation, if they truly seek the fruits of Holy behavior, Holy works need to be in us at all times, and not just times it seems convenient.

    Faith and belief aren't shallow, but run deep, and will show through even when you know others around can't see you, but only the Father and the Son above.

    Worship the Most High in truth, and how He commands us.
