John 4:23 But 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.
This is one of the clearest verses for inaugurated eschatology: not only is the hour coming (the "not yet") but is here now (the "already"). While we wait for the fullness of God's kingdom to be revealed, we are already living in God's kingdom today. Already we can worship God in and by His Spirit and in truth - that is, truly, without distraction or confusion.
God the Father is seeking people to worship Him: to be in relationship with Him, to know His truth and be set free. As people enter the kingdom and accept His invitation, they become a part of His story - they become a part of His world, they share the authority thet Jesus has given us over sin and the enemy.
Which world are you living in?
