Our ancestors worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.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 19-24)

Jesus tells them that the place of worship is not nearly as important as the inner attitude of the worshippers. God is not confined to just one place. God is a spirit that is present everywhere and can be heard anytime and anywhere. It doesn’t matter where it is, it depends on how we do it.
