Dear Church Member,
(This is not written to anyone in particular. Rather to every church member of every church out there)
You may like the way your worship leader sings.
You may like the way your worship leader looks.
You may like what your worship leader says.
You may like the songs your worship leader writes.
All that is dandy. It is great to feel those nice, pretty, shiney things.
But it is not about you. It is not about your likes, needs, and comfort at all.
The reason they stand before you is to lead you to a place of unabandoned worship in your Savior.
The reason they stand before you is to display to you a lifestyle of worship that God has called you and them into.
The reason they stand before you is to CHALLENGE you that your level of praise to God Almighty should take a step up.
The reason they stand before you is because God Himself, has called them, TO LEAD YOU in worship. This means that you need leading. So stop staring at them, and start following them.
Get The Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus to lead worship at your church if you’re in it for kicks and giggles. But if you are in it to be led… Swallow your pride and follow your leader.
