Keeping worship simple is a must in these trying times.
Keeping Worship Simple is Not That Simple!
Many have noticed that worshipping has become more and more complex over the last several decades, with increases in production, costs, amps, lights and even things like smoke machines and lasers. The old days of simplicity seem to be a thing of the past.
So in this pod, we examine how we can keep our worship simple, yet effective. Do we need all the production, or do we need more hearts set upon the Lord, focused on Him and seeking Him willingly and deeply?
And please don’t get me wrong. I love the production stuff. I appreciate lights and effects, but I also understand that the Holy Spirit needs none of these to penetrate into the souls of worshippers. After COVID, one of the things we are discovering is that life in general and your relationship with the Lord could do with being just a bit simpler.
Us humans know how to complicate things, don’t we? We take a simple task like connecting with God in worship, and we make it more and more complicated. Yet worship in essence is not something we do, it is a place where we live. We can choose to live our lives connected to the Lord, or drop in for an hour a week… the choice is ours.
Connecting with and worshipping God has always been available to us. We don’t need smoke, laser lights or loud music, we need hearts that are open and obedient to Him. And that’s good news for those of us who have a budget. We don’t need to buy more stuff, we can just simply usee tools like a single guitar, a piano, even an organ. We can even worship without any music at all. Why? Because worship is not what we do, it is who we are!
