Tested by Fire 5
Scripture John 4 :20-24
The world today has laid so much emphasis on the issue of denomination more than the person and principles of Jesus Christ, so the saying goes “Come to my church and you will experience God like never before “.
The Samaritan woman’s encounter with Jesus Christ at the well exposes the reality of the question of denominational divides and true worship in John 4:20 ” Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship.”
The age long reality in the body of Christ is that many are making Idols out their denomination. You may want to ask, does that mean we shouldn’t extend invitation to our friends or family to the church we attend ? That’s not my thrust in this matter ,the bible in
Hebrew 10:25A says
” Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing” .
What we should have in mind is this ,the time we spend in church will be tested by fire to see if our worship is premise in truth and spirit according to John 4:23-24
“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”
“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”
