While not the gist of his post, I couldn’t resist the title. Joe blogs about his philosophy in leading a worship service .
As one of the worship leaders in my church, I feel a very heavy responsibility to provide our congregation with a service that points them toward the Lord Jesus and helps them to have a personal encounter with our Creator, primarily through the music experience.
Lots of gems:
The Bible is replete with admonitions to lift up our voices to God. Indeed, the entire book of Psalms is made up of songs meant to be sung.
If we don’t do what God says to do, we sin. Therefore, since God says to sing, if we aren’t singing, we must conclude that we are sinning.
Hat tip to Biting the Bullets.
