Text is in John 4:23-24 NIV Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” John 4:23-24 NASB But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth." Note the differences in the translations: "in the Spirit" vs. "in spirit" (BTW: KJV "in spirit"; ESV "in spirit"; NKJV "in spirit".) As far as I know this is the only direct instructions Jesus gives as to how we should worship. I understand the context of the previous verses meaning that worship is not to be confined to a physical location (as the Samaritans and Jews practiced it.) But what does worshiping in the Spirit mean--surrender to the Holy Spirit and let him lead you? And what about worshiping in spirit--be passionate about it? What does worshiping in truth mean--be doctrinally correct? These are important concepts and I don't know what they mean.
