Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device. And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Acts 17:29-30.
Heaven, hell and the afterlife were a guess before Christ, everyone has his version and they had several names. After the death and resurrection, Christ revealed them as geographic locations and him their administrator. The resurrection of Christ also reveals the true nature of man: a spirit, having a soul but living in a body.
Religion is the platform for guesswork & assumptions; Christ gives life, reality and certainty. Christ breaks the cycle of religion and brings certainty and reality to life. Idols are byproducts of human guesswork, no wonder they differ from one location to the other. God is not a guess, worshipping him is not a farce but a fact.
“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.”John 4:23-24.
Everyman looks like who he worships” the words of a wise man with details. The offsprings of God are like him; God is a Spirit, he made them spirits. Christ is the picture or image of God; the first born of the father. The curse of idolatry on Africa is terminated & we are translated in Christ. A stone, plastic beads, woodwork, sculpture, brassware, gold or silver cannot represent God. Those that worship him are changed into his image and nature.
A change of heart is the first step to worshipping God; repentance gives access to worship in spirt and truth.
“Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:” Colossians 1:12-15.
Prayer: Father, thank you for making a way for me to become your offspring. God is a Spirit, I am a spirit in his image and likeness. My worship is in spirit and truth! Thank you lord Jesus.
