I.Conceiving the Truth

A. Fellowship with God

1. (ref. 1 Pet. 1:23 AMP) God’s Word is His incorruptible Seed that contains His life, essence and DNA.

a. Seed must be conceived to produce fruit.

b. Conception requires intimacy and fertilization.

2. (1 Cor. 1:9) “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Our most important calling as believers is fellowship with Jesus.

3. Fellowship (intimacy) with God includes (1) hearing God, (2) meditating His Word, (3) prayer, (4) worship, and (5) praise.

B True Worship

1. (John 4:20-24) “…true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.”

2. What is true worship? Worship is a lifestyle of obeying, serving, glorifying, honoring and demonstrating allegiance, homage and dedication to God from the heart.

a. The word worship is derived from the ancient phrase “worth – ship” which means to ascribe worth and value to something or someone.
