John 4: 7-
15The woman saith unto him, Sir, give me this water, that I thirst not, neither come hither to draw. 16Jesus saith unto her, Go, call thy husband, and come hither. 17The woman answered and said, I have no husband. Jesus said unto her, Thou hast well said, I have no husband: 18For thou hast had five husbands; and he whom thou now hast is not thy husband: in that saidst thou truly. 19The woman saith unto him, Sir, I perceive that thou art a prophet. 20Our fathers worshipped in this mountain; and ye say, that in Jerusalem is the place where men ought to worship. 21Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me, the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain, nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father. 22Ye worship ye know not what: we know what we worship: for salvation is of the Jews. 23But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. 25The woman saith unto him, I know that Messias cometh, which is called Christ: when he is come, he will tell us all things. 26Jesus saith unto her, I that speak unto thee am he.
After studying several different commentaries and bible versions, the words that are the focus of what Jesus said are found in verse 23.
There are many more aspects that can be added to the short list above. The study of the Word of God, quiet time in prayer, exploring the attributes and character of God and learning submission to the Holy Spirit will bring us closer to our Father. Discernment of the Holy Spirit must be earnestly sought after and accepted to grow in Spirit, Truth and Grace. Our human nature must be crucified daily, our pride exchanged for the humility as exemplified by Jesus of Nazareth while on earth, we must be willing to be baptized into the death of Jesus Christ and realize our faults, sins, iniquities and failures by repentance and be regenerated by the Spirit.
