John 4:21-24 AMP
Jesus replied, “Woman, believe Me, a time is coming [when God’s kingdom comes] when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You [Samaritans] do not know what you worship; we [Jews] do know what we worship, for salvation is from the Jews. But a time is coming and is already here when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit [from the heart, the inner self] and in truth; for the Father seeks such people to be His worshipers. God is spirit [the Source of life, yet invisible to mankind], and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”
Philippians 3:3 AMP
"for we [who are born-again have been reborn from above-spiritually transformed, renewed, set apart for His purpose and] are the true circumcision, who worship in the spirit of God and glory and take pride and exult in Christ Jesus and place no confidence [in what we have or who we are] in the flesh."
Psalms 63:5-8 AMPC
"My whole being shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise You with joyful lips When I remember you upon my bed and meditate on You in the night watches. For You have been my help, and in the shadow of Your wings will I rejoice. My whole being follows hard after You and clings closely to You; Your right hand upholds me".
Hebrews 13:15-17 AMPC
"Through Him, therefore, let us constantly and at all times offer up to God a sacrifice of praise, which is the fruit of lips that thankfully acknowledge and confess and glorify His name. Do not forget or neglect to do kindness and good, to be generous and distribute and contribute to the needy [of the church as embodiment and proof of fellowship], for such sacrifices are pleasing to God. Obey your spiritual leaders and submit to them [continually recognizing their authority over you], for they are constantly keeping watch over your souls and guarding your spiritual welfare, as men who will have to render an account [of their trust]. [Do your part to] let them do this with gladness and not with sighing and groaning, for that will not be profitable to you [either]".
2 Samuel 6:14-15 MSG
"So David thought,” I’ll get that blessing for myself,” and went and brought up the Chest of God from the house of Obed-Edomite to the City of David, celebrating extravagantly all the way, with frequent sacrifices of choice bulls. David ceremonially dressed in priest’s linen, danced with great abandon before God. The whole country was with him as he accompanied the Chest of God with shouts and trumpet blasts".
John 9:31 AMPC & MSG
"We know that God does not listen to sinners; but if anyone is God-fearing and a worshiper of Him and does His will, He listen to them. It’s well known that God isn’t at the beck and call of sinners, but listens carefully to anyone who lives in reverence and does his will."
1 Chronicles 16:29 AMP
"Ascribe to the Lord the glory and honor due His name; Bring an offering [of thanksgiving], and come before Him; Worship the Lord in the splendor of holiness".
