We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
John 4:21 NASB
Jesus said to her, “Woman, believe Me, an hour is coming when neither in this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father.”
Jesus concluded worship in the temple and brought it into the “new” temple, His Body of believers. He brought a new demand of worship as well. Now acceptable worship would be in spirit and in truth…a heart matter, not a form. And He didn’t announce this shocking news to the priests in the temple at Jerusalem. He announced it to one Gentile sinner, a woman, and that in itself was altogether NEW.
Jesus brought a radical END and a staggering NEW to everything. And it was the finish of everything God Himself had ordained and commanded.
