Philippians 3:3 AMP: for we [who are born-again have been reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, set apart for His purpose and] are the true circumcision, who worship in the Spirit of God and glory and take pride and exult in Christ Jesus and place no confidence [in what we have or who we are] in the flesh—
Do you know that to be born again, is to be born from above by the Spirit of the living God? Are you aware that there was a spiritual transformation that took place in your life the day you accepted Jesus as your Lord and savior? You were spiritually circumcised and set apart for God’s purpose. Know today that the physical circumcision carried out in time past was just a symbol of what will happen in our spirits before Jesus came.
Jesus has come and won the victory on the cross and also open the door to spiritual birth and circumcision. Once you believe in your heart the Lord Jesus and confess Him with your mouth as your Lord and savior, this transformation will happen to you. Only then will you be able to worship God in the spirit. These are the type of worshipers that God is actively looking for. Jesus Himself said, “.. God is a spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24
It’s an error to put confidence in your flesh by the way you worship God. Many assume that God will listen to them better if they put up certain physical demonstrations or postures while worshipping. The Spirit of the Lord is your sure guide to the true worship of God. What you have or put on during worship or who you are is completely irrelevant in the worship of God. Wake up to this truth and actively seek to worship God in the spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit for help and guidance. He will surely satisfy you.
Declare to yourself loud: I have no confidence in the flesh.
Spirit of the living God, open my mind to understand this truth about God. May I actively seek to worship God in spirit and in truth. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
