The Anywhere/Anytime God – John 4:23-24

“But the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him. God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth.” Mount Gerizim was the Old Testament setting for the pronouncement of blessings for keeping the covenant. The Samaritans identified Mount Gerizim as the place for the altar to sacrifice to God. That is what the Samaritan woman was arguing to Jesus when He made this statement to her by Jacob’s well. Because God is spirit, He is looking for people to worship Him in Spirit. In other words, God is looking for people in whom He can dwell by His Spirit. And that was Jesus’ job during His earthly ministry and His job today–find people to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and then worship Him not just on Mount Gerizim, but anywhere and anytime.
