I was in a conference in the South-South, and as the worship session was ongoing, I had a prompt to lay before the Lord. The church floor was still concrete and dusty, but I obeyed the Lord. 

After the session, a man approached me and said, “I love your attitude during worship.” I acknowledge his compliments. He saw my name tag and said, “I already knew you were a Yoruba man.” I smiled and thanked him. 

Worshipping God is bigger than culture; therefore, culture should not become a barrier to worship. Worship must be a cultural barrier breaker. We may be of different tribes, but we must all be worshippers. 

That was the argument of the Samaritan Woman when she met Jesus. She was bringing up cultural arguments about what the Jews think and the opposing views of the Samaritans. 

Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.”

John 4:20 NIV

Jesu pointed to her that worship was superior to culture. What did Jesus say? 

“Woman,” Jesus replied, “believe me, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, for salvation is from the Jews. 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. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.”

John 4:21-24 NIV

Wherever you find true worshippers, culture becomes less of an issue. A true worshipper does not argue when another worshipper wants to marry a worshipper from another tribe. Why? We all belong to one tribe, and Jesus is the lion of that tribe. That tribe is the tribe that worships in spirit and truth. 

This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, Who seek Your face. Selah

Psalms 24:6 NKJV

How do you know the worshippers in your tribe? It is not because they can sing slow songs with sweet voices. This is how: 

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully.

Psalms 24:4 NKJV

They have clean hands. 

Their motive is pure. 

They are not sold out to idols. That is, nothing will ever take the place of God in their lives. 

They never practice deceit. They do not lie even when in business. If they are fashion designers, they are prompt and faithful. 

Worshippers have a huge tribe all over the world. 

I am a worshipper. We bow to the Lord. 

I am a worshipper. I bow to the Will of My Commander. 

I am a worshipper. I do not debate but obey the Word of God. 

I am a worshipper. Our tribe is large. 

I am a worshipper. I married a worshipper. 

I am a worshipper. 

Are you a worshipper? 


There is love in sharing
