A Verse to Share

I think the graciousness of our Lord is a fantastic thing. In this passage, Jesus is speaking with the Samaritan woman. He is talking about how God wants everyone to worship him. Hallelujah.

John 4: 23

Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
