Your last Priority As a Worship Leader on a Sunday : Singing

open_mic

"The last thing worship leaders need to do today is sing. Singing should be a response to your week of leading others off the mic."

                                – Carlos Whittaker

How true is that?  I think that, all too often, we fall into the mindset that everything we do all week long is geared towards our ultimate goal of leading others in worship on Sunday.  We need to undo that line of logic and, instead, focus on our weekly activities as the most important aspects of our ministries.  Hospital visits are, to me, more important than the time spent determining the music to be played on a given Sunday.  Spending time counseling a band member or another church-member who is having marital issues – if even by having a cup of coffee with him/her to simply lend an ear – is more important than ensuring the stage gets set.

Don’t get me wrong – we should be properly preparing our services…but we should not take it for granted that the Sunday service is the most important part of our worship.  What we do – what we reflect on a given Sunday – should be an honest thanksgiving of the worship we’ve been able to experience during the week with others.

It is easy to be a great worship leader on Sundays behind the mic…how great is your worship Monday through Saturday off the mic?  Start, this week, making your Monday-Saturday life the most important part of your week…and see how God takes and uses that for your Sunday worship!
