Our Daily Bread 3rd October 2021 Devotional Today Sunday Message Written By YMI (Our Daily Bread Ministries)

TOPIC: WHEREVER WE WORSHIP

BIBLE IN A YEAR: Isaiah 20–22; Ephesians 6

KEY VERSE: A time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. – John 4:23

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: John 4:7–24

Then the king of Assyria sent a Jewish priest to the land to teach the people how to worship God, but the people continued to worship other gods (vv. 27–29). The Samaritans came from this exchange of peoples and a mixture of beliefs. By Alyson Kieda

Jesus spoke the truth and loved her as she stood next to that well (v. 10). He revealed His intimate and sovereign knowledge of His children (vv. 17–18). Proclaiming His deity, Jesus declared that the Holy Spirit evoked true worship from the hearts of God’s people, not from a specific physical location (vv. 23–24).

When we focus on who God is, what He’s done, and all He’s promised, we can rejoice in His constant presence as we worship Him with other believers, in our living rooms . . . and everywhere! By Xochitl Dixon
