Deep calls for deep my friend; and they that worship God MUST worship him in spirit and in truth. You don’t serve him anyway you like, but, the Spirit of truth, should "guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come" John 16:13.
The Spirit, (not reason) should be allowed to detect the things of God to you, and guide you into all truth. Sermons should not be based on reason, but truth. Paul says,
"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you" Philippians 4:8-9.
The God of peace shall be with you; only if you worship him in spirit and truth. Relationship with God is not based on material things, but things spiritual for God is a Spirit. The fruit of the Spirit is seen in these things, and Paul said these think about, remember and do. What things? This above all: to thine own self be true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of a good report. What does the Lord require of you my friend? It is to do good and be spiritually prosperous - that forget not.
