John 4:21-26 BHT, What do we Worship?

An addition to the BHT, where Jesus speaks with a woman about what it is we should be worshiping, adoring, reverencing, cherishing, loving.

21 “Beloved woman,” Jesus said, “rest assured, a moment is coming very soon—and is here even right now for some—when you will love our Source neither on this Mount Gerizim nor on any mountain, and neither in the temple at Jerusalem nor in any temple built with human hands.

22 “You don’t know what it is you worship. We should love the One that we know ourselves, the One through which salvation comes to Israel, even all those who ‘struggle to know God.’

23 “Yet a moment is coming very soon—and is here even right now for some—when real genuine worshipers will reverence our Source in the Spirit of Life and True Reality, for our Source desires that we adore and love this.

24 “God is this Breath and Spirit of Life, the Light-Energy which animates all Being and living Consciousness, including our Selves, and so those who wish to worship God should seek at-One-ment in this Spirit of Life and Love and True Reality that exists even right here and right now.

25 The woman then said to him, “I know that the Messiah or ‘Anointed One’ is coming very soon, the One that is also called ‘Christ.’ When he comes, he will certainly explain all of this to us and what it all means.”

26 And Jesus replied to her, “The One that speaks with you even now, I AM so Anointed.”
