Leading worship means different things to different people: For young leaders, they can see it as an exciting and fun experience while for the seasoned leaders, it can still be a fulfilling yet challenging task for them. As worship leaders, it should be our aim to glorify God in everything that we do. Let’s take time to pause from time to time and reflect if what we are doing is acceptable and pleasing to Him. Here are some reflection questions we can ask ourselves as worship leaders:
Am I living a life that is fully surrendered to the Lord? Is the life I am living totally dedicated to Him? He is our heavenly Father and we believers are His children. He calls us His own and He knows us individually. He is our Master and there should be no other.
Singing is a beautiful expression of worship given to us by God. Like Moses and David, we are commanded to sing His praise and His glory. For our offerings to be accepted, we should be holy for He is holy. Our lives should conform to the high standards of God, written in His Word.
Pride and ego have no place in our life of worship – on and off the stage. “Come, let us worship and bow down.” Like the Apostle Paul, we should always come to the Lord with humility for there is nothing we can boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. Apart from Him we are nothing.
There is no way we can fool the all-knowing God whom we are serving. We worship Him in spirit and in truth. To try to worship Him with just our outward appearance is to actually fool ourselves. God sees everything that is hidden in our hearts and in our minds. Let us always ask Him to search us so that we can always bring to Him the true worship that He deserves
Like the Psalmists, the Bible tells us to serve the Lord with gladness. We will always have difficult situations in our lives. Trials, conflict with people, and problems with our relationships will always be there. The good thing is that we can always lay down all of these at the foot of the cross. He will be the one to give us peace. His grace will help us to rejoice always and to give thanks in everything even in the midst of everything we are going through.
Rejoice! It’s a great privilege to serve the King of kings and the Lord of lords, our creator God – the Lord Jesus Christ.
