John 4:23, 24 - Serve, Worship and Live for God in Spirit and Truth.
John 4:23, 24 (NIV) Yet a time is coming and

the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is
spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit

changes. His purpose never changes. His glory never
changes. He is the same yesterday, today, and
Can you think of any reason not to trust
Him? Neither can I!
Thank you, God, that I don't have to
wonder if you still love me, if you're still good,
or if you are still in control. Because of
this, I can trust you no matter what comes my way.
