About this event:
Not many people desire to be a worship leader. In fact, some may not have the calling, the talent, or courage to be in front. Well guess what, I believe we are all worship leaders.
Who comes to mind when you think of a worship leader? Having stood as the worship leader at Riverchase for over 30 years, I have noticed many times that the worship leaders are not necessarily just the people up front. In fact, the Spirit frequently moves persons to stand while we sing or to stand quietly while others sing, or to raise a hand in praise. These persons are wonderful worship leaders and “spark” the service.
Scripture says that true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks (John 4: 23-24). So we are to worship with our souls and spirit, not just our bodies. For without the Spirit, we can’t effectively worship, pray, praise, preach, and sense God’s presence.
In 2 Chronicles 20 verses 21 and 22, we see that the king appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise Him for the splendor of His holiness. By the way, they did this at the head of the army. Once they began to sing and praise, the Lord defeated the enemy. Our praise defeats this enemy because God inhabits praise.
SURPRISE! You’re leading worship this week. Oh you may not be the person in front of the congregation, but you may be in front of family members, neighbors, coworkers, persons at the store or pharmacy, and the list grows.
Be a true worshiper in spirit and truth.
