    The Christ said that Jehovah MUST be worshipped in spirit and truth [John 4:24]; what does this...

    really mean?
    Truth is as John 17:17, Psalm 119:160, and spirit, is as Galatians 5:22, 23
    show. Does this confirm that there is only ONE true faith?

    Christ is Spirit and Christ is Truth..

    This means the Truth thats within you ( not without ) is the Christ and Spirit

    this simply means Christ must be worshiped from the soul and with 100% honesty.  basically-he doesnt want you to dedicate your soul to him if your heart is not in it all the way.  Jesus doesnt want a partial relationship with you-he wants ALL of you!

    1. 'in spirit' means worshipping God without any object(s) eg idol before that worshiper.

    2. 'in Truth' means worshipping God with the correct teachings of God.

    There is only one true and living God: Yahweh, Jehovah.  He is the one Creator of everything and to worship Him in spirit and in truth means that we must be honest with ourselves and with God about us. We must be open and sincere when we approach God when we pray. God is Spirit and so He knows the true intent of our hearts and He knows what we are thinking at all times.  We can not come to God within our own pride.  We must say what we mean and mean it with all our hearts.  When we approach God in total honesty and in complete surrendering of our will for His ways, Word and will, He promised that He would in "no wise cast" us away but He would receive us with open arms. When we speak truth about ourselves then and only then can we receive the fullness of the blessings of the inheritance He has in store for us.  Our lives will then be examples of what it means to be a son or daughter of the Most High God.

    We must not only worship God with praise and adoration and prayer, but we must worship him by showing the fruits of the spirit that each of us have within us if we are truly Christians.  God knows our hearts and he knows when we are sincere and when we just don't have our heart in what we are doing.  Our fruits show whether we are truly dedicdated to his work or we are just merely going through the motions.  We should worship God with our whole countinence.
