As a worship leader, we GET to lead people in corporate singing and expression.
We are graciously called by Him to be instruments in bringing Him glory. However, we are flawed and our hearts are prone to wander and desire the things of the world.
If you have been leading worship for a while, you know sometimes you find yourself in a dry season.
Sunday mornings can easily become another weekly ritual and we can find ourselves going through the motions.
It is crucial that we stay encouraged and are constantly reminded that what God has graced us to do, is a gift and has an eternal impact.
May Shoreline Music never become bored of leading worship.
May ______________ (fill in your worship department) never become bored of leading worship.
My hope and prayer is when we find ourselves in this position, that we might remember we are literally doing the Lord’s work.
We are playing a part in changing people’s lives.
We are tools used to save souls.
That is something that should never get boring.
Jesus' interaction with the woman at the well, give us insight into what we should all see as our calibrator of worship:
"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.”
In our moments of complacency may we be reminded of the redeeming work that Christ has done in our lives; and that debt He has paid on our behalf.
Every word we sing, every chord we play, every beat we hit, every slide we cue, is an opportunity to speak this truth into someone else’s life. Let us cherish that and lead with joy.
