Sunday night’s “High Praises” service was a beautiful worship experience. It was joyful, thoughtful, authentic, musical, inspirational, spiritual, truthful, and more. I loved it, and I hope you did, too. Many thanks to John and the orchestra/School of Performing Arts, the choir, tech team, and Pastor Sam. We led worship in and from our respective roles, each of us contributing our part to this ministry and the body. Without you, it wouldn’t have been as meaningful or impactful, so thank you for your faithfulness and dedication.
In choir rehearsals beginning in January, we have been reading and discussing Bob Kauflin’s book, “Worship Matters.” When you think about it, Sunday night was a picture of what we discussed from that study. With right mind and heart and modeling an example of godly worship-leading, we magnified the greatness of God in Jesus Christ through the power of the Spirit, skillfully combining God’s word with music, thereby motivating the gathered church to proclaim the gospel, cherish God’s presence, and live for God’s glory.
Quite simply, that’s awesome.
Let’s build on this as we look forward to many more such worship times; not only for special events like this but each week as the church meets. Let’s be worshipers, renewed daily in the word and prayer and faithful in worship with our church family, all the while remembering our calling as worship leaders. There is no higher calling than that which the Lord places on our lives. Let’s keep walking in that calling together.
