the real worship of God is to eat Him and drink Him in our spirit


Recently I have been very impressed with God’s desire and seeking for worshippers – those who worship Him in spirit and in truthfulness. God wants us to worship Him, yet nowhere in the Bible we are told that we need to prostrate ourselves before Him and bow down/kneel down to worship Him. Rather, both the beginning and the end of the Bible imply eating – in the garden of Eden, the tree of life, and in the New Jerusalem, the tree of life again. This is the real worship to God – us receiving Him as life, feeding on Him and drinking of Him.

The God whom we worship is not Someone objective to us – outside of us. He is a real subjective inward operating God. Christ is in us – in our spirit, mingled with our spirit! Even our prayer is actually Christ in us praying to Christ in the heavens. The God whom we worship is the indwelling God – organically one with us – He is mingling Himself with us by us enjoying Him, eating Him and drinking Him. Even in John 4(verse 24), where the Lord Jesus speaks about:

God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truthfulness

He actually speaks about Him giving us the living water to drink and never thirst again! The real worship God is looking for is that we would drink of Him as the living water, and eat Him as the life-giving tree – so that we may flow Him out(out of your innermost being shall flow rivers of living waters). He came as the living bread(and the bread of life, the life-giving bread, the tree of life) and He has the living water for all those that come to Him by faith!

Let’s drink of Him – O, Lord Jesus! As we call on His name, as we open our being to Him, He fills us from within – from our spirit within flows a fountain of life! When we exercise our spirit to call on His name, to pray, to enjoy Him and have fellowship with Him, we worship Him in the way He wants us to. And there is a spontaneous issue of our drinking – we overflow with the Triune God to the ones around us! Just like the woman at the well in Samaria – she drank of the Lord, so she overflowed to all the ones in the city! Lord, today, keep us eating You, drinking You, and enjoying You wherever we are and whatever happens!
