Worship Under the Gospel

This Sunday I'm preaching on John 4 where Jesus says, "...the hour is coming when neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem will you worship the Father... the hour is coming, and is now here, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father is seeking such people to worship him." As I've been meditating on this and other passages I have gone back to the Second London Confession.

Under the Gospel [the New Testament order] neither prayer nor any other part of part of religious worship is tied to, or made more acceptable by, any place in which it is performed or towards which it is directed. God is to be worshipped everywhere in spirit and in truth, whether in private families daily, in secret by each individual, or solemnly in the public assemblies. These are not to be carelessly or willfully neglected or forsaken, when God by his word and providence calls us to them.

There is much here to soak in. Take some time with it.
