This passage about worship is split into two parts; the first part is about how we see worship before God, while the second part is about how God would like to see us worshipping him.
If we were to ask anybody what the definition of worship is, it would probably sound something like “certain rituals done in a place assigned for such purpose, like churches, synagogues, mosques, etc.”. We tend to think of worship as something between God and us only, and to a certain extent, this is true. First and foremost, worship is our offering to God, and it should never come cheap. If God gave us the best he had, the least we could do is give him back our best. However, all the rituals we perform should be a reflection of our daily devotion to him. Our life should show in our everyday actions that our relationship with God does not restrict to Sundays only, but it is something ongoing. This is only going to happen when we worship him “in truth and in spirit”. That is, our hearts and minds have to be part of our worship, otherwise it is meaningless. My God help us worship him in truth and spirit every day of our lives.
