This is an excerpt from Part 2 of my guest postÂ at WorshipTeamCoach.com, Nine Truths to Empower The Worship Leaders Mindset [Part2]. The WorshipTeamCoach.com website by Jon Nicol is a great resource, I love his pithy humor.
You can read Part One here.
5. Priorities â€“ keep the main thing the main thing.
â€œLove the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strengthâ€ Mark 12:30
This is the first and greatest commandment. It helps prioritize what is most important.
Lose sight of this and you will get lost.
If youâ€™re disoriented and confused, come back to this scripture as a guidepost and re-think it.
7. God is not impressed with what impresses people.
He never has been and He never will be. God does not need us to put on a show.
Jesus delivers a devastating critique of â€œworship for showâ€ in Mark 7:6-7:
â€œâ€˜These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by menâ€
Lights, loops, atmospheric pads â€“ great tools, but thatâ€™s all they are â€“ and meaningless in His eyes.
