The time we live in is characterized by different doctrinal deceptions. Many are busy serving God but they are not worshipping in Spirit and in truth. It is only those who worship according to God’s standard that will be accepted. There is need for us to constantly examine ourselves so that we will not be led astray.
Paul warned Timothy to always watch his doctrine closely. He said:
“Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.” (1 Timothy 4:16 KJV)
God has standard. His standard is not according to man’s invention but it is according to God’s own Word:
“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)
