Is it just me or has worship at most churches become very predictable? I talked about upgrading the words and lyrics we sing in worship recently, pointing out that the words we sing are very important. But what about the worship experience as a whole? Can anything be done to improve it?
Having a sensitivity for the spirit and what he is doing on any given occasion is equally important. All too often, there is a lot of singing at church and not enough leading by worship leaders. Personally, I believe this is a systemic issue because no one is modeling what spirit-led worship is. While I believe worship is a personal choice, a good worship leader can do a lot toward helping the body break through gunk in our lives via the worship experience.
As an example, I submit to you a worship song from the team at Bethel in Redding, CA. Worshippers with passion, who operate out the leading of the spirit, bringing with it a tremendous anointing in the process that God can use to change our hearts.
Do you agree that we need more of this kind of worship or do you think it’s fine as it is?
