The time is coming, and now is, when true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth...
So if worship is about attitude and posture. If worship is about submitting oneself to a higher authority. If worship is bowing one's face in honor of the Most High God. Then what does it mean to worship in spirit?
Pneuma from the Greek verb to blow. A video arrived in my inbox yesterday, the day Love Wins arrived in my mailbox, that offers insight into worship in spirit, in breath. Check it out.

Putting away, for the time being, the focus on substitutionary atonement, which is great, but only one of the ways we talk about God's salvific even in Jesus Christ, the call in this video to return the very breath God gave us in praise is, I think, what Jesus is asking for in this passage. True worship offers God back everything he has given us, even the very breath that gives us life.
