Ideas for
Worship Leaders

The Apostle Paul wrote, "to him (God) be the glory in
the church" (Ephesians 3:21)  There can be no doubt
that the only one that is to receive glory is the
Almighty Creator.  This truth is even more relevant
when it comes to the church.  The church is the place
where God is to be the subject of
worship, the object
of worship, and the centre of attention.

Funny, but that is not always the case.  The
temptation to be focused on personalities and other
temporary things is very real in the church.  No
matter how good a song sounds and no matter how
good a worship team sounds or looks, nothing can
compare to God.

Who in the church is like our God?  He is perfect in
every way.  Perfect
love.  Perfect in knowledge.  
Perfect in
justice.  Perfect in patience.  And, can we
forget that he is the Founder of the church itself?  If it
wasn't for his supreme sacrifice, the church would not
exist.  We would all be lost in our sin (Luke 15).

When Satan tempted Jesus to worship him, Jesus
answered with a firmness.  "Go Satan!  For it is
written, you shall worship the Lord your God, and
serve him only". (Matthew 4:10)  

A great scene of worship will unfold one day,
according to
John's writing in The Revelation.  A
multitude of voices will be heard saying, "let us
rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the
marriage of the Lamb has come and His Bride has
made herself ready". (Revelation 19:7)

Worship in the church?  It is to him, "for the Lord
Almighty reigns" (Revelation 19:6)  Tempted to
focus on things or personalities?  Remember who
worship is for and why.
