Tomorrow will we sing or will we worship?

#WorshipComesFromTheHolySpirit  #TrueWorshipIsNotAboutWhatWeFeel


True worship is about what God is saying to us as we worship. How he is revealing ourselves and our growth – even the areas in which we still need to grow-but never in a condemnatory manner. It is always with the caveat that I love you where you are. Take my hand and I will lead you through the process where your life becomes an act of worship of me. Look at how King David planned for the weekly gatherings of the Nation of Israel!

“David, together with the commanders of the army, set apart some of the sons of Asaph, Heman and Jeduthun for the ministry of prophesying, accompanied by harps, lyres and cymbals.

Here is the list of the men who performed this service:

  1. From the sons of Asaph: Zakkur, Joseph, Nethaniah and Asarelah. The sons of Asaph were under the supervision of Asaph, who prophesied under the king’s supervision.
  2. As for Jeduthun, from his sons: Gedaliah, Zeri, Jeshaiah, Shimei, Hashabiah and Mattithiah, six in all, under the supervision of their father Jeduthun, who prophesied, using the harp in thanking and praising the Lord. (All these were sons of Heman the king’s seer. They were given him through the promises of God to exalt him. God gave Heman fourteen sons and three daughters.) All these men were under the supervision of their father for the music of the temple of the Lord, with cymbals, lyres and harps, for the ministry at the house of God.
  3. Asaph, Jeduthun and Heman were under the supervision of the king.
    1. [Visialize a time when the King was the leader of the religious affairs of the nation. Christian leaders lead by example. They don’t multiple vunues and a barrage of counselors – they need to submit to God. David did that. HE ensure that the most precious part of the weekly gatherings of Israel was le by men and women chosen for that purpose. Not everyone can lead a ministry. Not everyone is called to lead worship.  There is worship and then there is singing and they are not the same. One is led by the Hly Sirit and the other is led by the Human Spirit!]
  4. Along with their relatives.—all of them trained and skilled in music for the Lord —they numbered 288. Young and old alike, teacher as well as student, cast lots for their duties. ” ‭‭1 Chronicles‬ ‭25:1-3, 5-31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

As we gather together as a family can we promise to spend time with at least one person whom we have not spoken to before? Why? That is how brotherly and sisterly relationships within the body of Christ are established. How about inviting someone over for a cup of tea? OR even just a slice of pizza and a cold drink while you share your experiences in Christ. I know of people who are desperate for those kinds of connections.

Think of your human family. What is it like when you have a family reunion? Can we worship together in the same spirit? Worship is about relationships. Our relationship with the Father and our relationships with each other.
