Lots of thoughts running through my mind right now as I prepare for a small workshop to help boost the confidence of the musicians at my current church before I leave. The most pressing on my mind right now is this one:
How can we lead others into God’s presence if we haven’t been there ourselves?
Last night I led worship for a small gathering and the leader said that I would be “leading…(them)…into God’s presence tonight.” I thought…wow, you know what? I haven’t really been in God’s presence today.
How can we lead worship when we don’t spend time in worship daily?
How can we lead worship when we are chasing after other things besides God?
Man…I need to be in His presence more than ever.
