But the hour is coming and now is, when the true worshipers will
worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.
We do not find such a statement anywhere else in the Scriptures.
Nowhere is it said that the Father seeks; but here the Son of God makes known that the
Father seeks true worshipers, worshipers in spirit and in truth. And this seeking of the
Father of true worshipers goes on throughout this present age through the Spirit of God.
All who accept the Lord Jesus Christ, and are saved are thus sought by the Father as
worshipers. It is true we are saved to serve; but a still higher truth is we are saved to
worship. In fact only if we worship right, can we serve right. This true worship centers
in the Lord Jesus Christ; true worshipers are not gathered to earthly names, institutions,
denominations, sects or parties, but unto the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. The day will
come when "the hour" in which the Father seeks such to worship Him will end;
this dispensation in which the true Church is gathered will end, like previous
dispensations ended. The true Church will be brought to glory, and is seen there, in the
Book of Revelation, as a company of worshipers (Rev. 4-5).
