Worship In Spirit And Truth

Richard Baxter  (1615 – 91)

Remember the perfections of that God whom you worship, that he is a Spirit, and therefore to be worshipped in spirit and truth; and that he is most great and terrible, and therefore to be worshipped with seriousness and reverence, and not to be dallied with, or served with toys or lifeless lip-service; and that he is most holy, pure, and jealous, and therefore to be purely worshipped; and that he is still present with you, and all things are naked and open to him with whom we have to do.

The knowledge of God, and the remembrance of his all-seeing presence, are the most powerful means against hypocrisy.
