John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
How do I worship in spirit and truth?
I Corinthians 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.
Verse 13:13 And now abides faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
To hope is to expect, anticipate, knowing your request is not only heard but being fulfilled perfectly and timely.
Hebrews 6:9-11 But, beloved, we are persuaded better things of you, and things that accompany salvation, though we thus speak. 10For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. 11And we desire that every one of you do shew the same diligence to the full assurance of hope unto the end:
Verse 6:12-20 Explains this hope as the anchor of our soul, verse 19. This is the continued work of ministering for love of those lost and the glory of the Son.
Romans 12:9-21 12 Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;
Romans 12:9-21 is expressing faith, hope, and love, we must learn to put it in to practice. Many situations, our nature is to do the opposite to these verses. Where is our worship to God, what is the example of our faith?
Shama Israel, Yahuweh let us worship Him is spirit and in truth by faith which is our trust in His word of who He says we have become. Let us not be tossed to and fro by the circumstances of this world that our faith waiver, our hope being without expectation.
Spiritual worship is [Galatians 5:5 For we through the Spirit wait for the hope of righteousness by faith] the evidence of this hope and faith[ But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23Meekness, temperance:] This is the worship that the Father desires, this is truth and faith and the results in your soul, peace in the Holy Ghost.
Isaiah 48:11 Behold, I have refined thee, but not (with) as silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction. To refine as silver is to totally remove all dross thus changing completely. We have only been refined to the ability to over come the remaining dross until the day of Yahushua when all dross is taken away. We face only unbelief and that is conquered by His word of truth.
Father may we stand steadfast in the word of truth, over coming every tribulation by patience and hope with joy. Trusting your word and Son who has positioned us as Your children. Our faith continuing to grow showing forth the fruits of the Spirit to all the world which is truly worship to You and glory to Your Son Yahushua our hope of salvation.
