It is weird to sing about the matchless love of Christ, the good news of the gospel, and the hope that we have in Jesus without being excited about what we are singing.
Life has a lot of distractions! Kind of like billboards and signs and other vehicles on the road, life has a lot going on. It can be hard to stay focused with so many distractions vying for attention. As worshipers, we can certainly become distracted ourselves, but as worship leaders, we must recognize this constant pull that our people face and try to help them stay focused in the midst of the distraction.
It happens to everyone. If it hasn’t happened to you yet, or recently, it will. No one is exempt. What do you do when you mess up?
When we meet together each week for congregational worship, I believe it is beneficial to bring something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.
When it comes to leading a worship team and selecting songs that will be effective and edifying for the church, it is always a good idea to plan for the weakest link.
Worship songs can tend to be easy and rather repetitive, but that is good. There is a blessing in the boredom. The simplicity of the songs should allow worship musicians to focus on what matters most.
MAIN POINT: Many congregants are not singing along during the worship service simply because they don’t know the songs, there are too many songs being sung, and too many of the songs are not all that great.
MAIN POINT: In a typical band setting, every member has a specific role to play, and only that role.
