I belong to a bunch of ‘Worship Leader’ blogs and message boards.
The most common ‘post’ is, in a nutshell, “our Worship Team rehearses and works hard, and our Church spends tons of money on the Worship Experience, but SO many people walk in, are there, then leave totally un-affected… even critical… of what we’ve poured so much into…. AHHHH!!”.
Give a listen to Pastor Bill Johnson of Bethel Redding, a talk from the 2018 ‘WorshipU On Campus’…
Matthew 9:13a says, “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ (NIV)
How do we exercise Mercy as Lead Worshippers amongst the people that God has placed us with, and tasked us to be a vehicle of helping them come into His Presence? How do we avoid ‘sacrifice’ and focus on ‘mercy’ in our various places and contexts? What does that look like for you… and I??
I take Matt 9:13a as a personal invitation from the Father, to go to Him and learn what all this means… coming, Papa…
