Family Devotion 2022-06-26 God Is A Spirit John 4:24 – God is a Spirit, and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. The Bible declares God to be a Spirit. In the Gospel of John, Jesus is talking to a woman at the well of Sychar. He makes a Straightforward statement about God; He says simply, “God is a Spirit.” Immediately you imagine a sort of cloudly vapor. But that is not a picture of God. If I want to know what a spirit is, I can find out from these words of Christ after His resurrection: “Come and touch me and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have” – Luke 24:39. So, I know that spirit is incorporeal. In other words, it is “unbody.” Spirit is contrary to the body. Spirit is opposite to the body. Spirit is something that is not limited by a body. Spirit is not changeable as a body. The Bible declares that God is Spirit and that He is not limited to the body. He is not limited to shape, force, boundaries, or bonds. He is absolutely immeasurable and indiscernible to eyes that are limited to physical things. The Bible declares that because God has no such limitations, He can be everywhere at the same time. “God is a Spirit – infinite, eternal, and unchangeable.” Those three words beautifully describe God. He is infinite –not body-bound. Eternal –He has no beginning and no end. He is the one forever self-existent. The Bible declares that He never changes – that there is no variableness or shadow of turning with Him (James 1:17), People change, fashion changes, conditions and circumstances change, but God never changes. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. –– Billy Graham – “Unto The Hills” A Daily Devotional, 2010, 2nd Edition. Prayer: Our Father and our God, my finite mind, cannot fathom Your infinite nature. My physical body cannot comprehend Your spiritual being. And my ever-changing mind cannot grasp Your never-changing ways. Still, I believe You are all these things. All-knowing, Awesome, and Creator God. Help me trust and obey You, even more through Jesus, through whom I pray, Amen. To Praise Him and Pray: Songs & Dances of Bible Verse (John 4:23-24) God is Spirit and Truth (Hand Motions) 7
