The Worshipper In Me “JUST BE IT”
Not long ago, I was asked to share as a guest worship leader for a neighboring fellowship. After the service, I was approached by several leaders who had one question in mind. They asked, “What is so different about your worship, which ushers us right into God’s presence?”. It was a question that I was excited to answer.
Over the years, I have attended many worship conferences and seminars. In addition, many articles and books on the subject have I read. My finger was always on the pulse of those who I deemed as great, passionate and anointed worshippers. As a result of synthesis, I developed a style which was a fusion of all that I allowed to enter my spirit.
But when I began to search the scripture, cognizant awareness sent an alarming jolt to my worship sensibility. My views of worship had been focused on the singing of songs, what scriptures were relative to the song choices and finally, the engaging of the crowd. And while all of the fore mentioned are important, I recognized something was missing.
Worship is more than a song, it is more than a scripture and it is more than a crowd collaboration. I came to understand that Worship is the greatest act of faith that a believer can ever exercise. Worship to the believer is like water to the fish – a lifestyle.
There are many scriptures referencing this dynamic, but my favorite is Romans 12:1-2, “I beseech you therefore brethren by the mercies of God that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God which is your reasonable service (spiritual worship)… “ Paul says the sacrifices which please God are not bulls, rams or sheep, but our lives.
“Brothers, to answer your question, worship is not what I do, worship is what I am. My life has become worship unto the Father. It is my lifestyle.”
