Can’t Worship?

My thanks to Rick Ianniello for this. I can’t believe we still have to say this. It’s so basic it hurts!

This is excellent from Tim Hughes

“The church that can’t worship must be entertained. And men who can’t lead a church to worship must provide the entertainment.” A.W. Tozer.

This is quite a challenge – especially as we all prepare to lead worship this Sunday. Are we going to pull out the classics, and try and force people into a time of worship? Are we going to rely on our own strength to make something happen? Or, are we going trust and follow God to lead us in a beautiful, deep and meaningful encounter of worship.

John 6:63
“The Spirit brings life; the flesh counts for nothing.”

Perhaps the best thing we could do in terms of our preparation for leading worship is to spend some time in God’s presence, seeking Him and asking that He may fill us up with the Holy Spirit and use us in power to bring glory to Him.

Let’s go for it. Who wants shallow entertainment when we can give people Jesus!

Peter serves as a pastor-teacher, at home and abroad, resourcing gospel-centred communities.
