Worship leader pride is something we need to think about, and defusing it is never an easy thing!
Worship Leader Pride is Ever Present!
Pride as a worship leader is something you and I need to be aware of, whether you are just starting out as a worship leader or if you have an established worship leading ministry already.
OK, it’s the original sin and all that, but why is it that pride affects so many in the worship leading ministry, and indeed in all up front ministries?
In this podcast we discuss what worship leader pride is, and how we can be on our guard against it. And if it is present, we discuss how you can deal with it and defuse the pride before it derails your ministry and your whole life! Things is, the sin of pride has the ability to do exactly that if you fail to defuse it first, and we need the Holy Spirit to touch and lead our lives to defuse the worship leader pride that assails us.
Leading worship is not only up front but it also involves skills and abilities that most people in the congregation do not have. To be able to sing or play an instrument is a source of pride in itself!
But we must never lose sight of the fact that we are His servants, and that He takes our talents and makes them into gifts! As a worship leader, I need to recognise that while I might be able to sing and play, it is the Lord who takes these things and makes them powerful. Leading others into worship is not about how good my skills are, but about what the Holy Spirit can do with these skills!
When we look across the congregation as see people worshipping, we must realise that this is an act of God and if he can use a donkey, He can use even me. Let’s not get full of ourselves, but let us keep a humble, servant heart and serve the King of Kings not our own agendas!
So if you want to become a powerful ministry, listen to this podcast and learn how to avoid worship leader pride and serve with all your heart…
