This week has been amazing! Our focus has been on our roles as Worship Leaders. l apppreciate the simplistic approach which Dan uses to explain our roles to us.It makes them very understandable and indentifiable.The Priestly , Pastoral, Prophectic roles among others have been discussed and like he keeps reminding us , we need to grow more in these roles as we continue to serve God in our communities.
On the character of a worship leader, Dan Wilt makes a profound statement that “Our authority to lead people in public life is rooted in our secret life with God.”In other words we should make sure there are no hidden issues affecting our souls that will prevent us from being used by God.
Brian Thiessen shares his life with us on the issue of pride which all humans struggle with, especially those taking visible roles. He boldly gets us on this spiritual battleground and offers some helpful suggestions on how to deal with pride, namely; making a choice to walk in humilty, confessing our motives to trusted individuals, and finally keeping worship leadership in perspective.This is a treasure!
Matt Redman brings us back to what is important; our worship should be all about God and nothing else. This desire and passion can be sustained by persevering in our intimate worship time with God.
The heavenly roll (role) call has begun for us worship leaders and thank God we are all present, ready to serve our Master diligently.
