Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! (Psalm 150:4)
What is your role in Sunday worship service?
In his book, Prayer: The Great Adventure, David Jeremiah thinks many of us have become “confused about who’s doing what in worship.”
Typically, we think of worshipers as an audience; pastors are entertainers; and God is the prompter – standing off stage supplying a forgotten word or thought during the performance of a play.
In fact, says Pastor Jeremiah, “worshipers are performers; pastors are prompters.” Most importantly, “God is the audience.”
Those of us in the pews not simply sponges, soaking up the good word. Rather, we are worshipers, — actors, if you will — performing a drama with different parts: speaking, singing, praying, tithing, baptizing, and eating bread and drinking wine. “We do all this for the delight of God.”
Expand your role. Cherish it. Please the King.
Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! (Psalm 150:3)
Consider this your invitation to move out from the pew, into the light. Reading, singing, dancing, acting. What is your talent? What is your message to God on Sunday morning?
If you have a talent you’d like to share to enhance our worship service, please speak to Pastor Tommy or Pastor Sam (both at 828-667-9818). Describe what is in your heart, your passion, your devotion. Worship service is a time to be consequential.
