Sometimes it is very easy to get caught up in playing the right notes, singing the right lyrics (this is a big one) and being on key that we can lose sight of what we should really be doing: leading passionately.
A good friend of mine use to tell me to always lead passionately and boldly–owning the stage. God has put us in a place of leadership (worship leading) for a purpose. I can guarantee that God wants us to always be passionate about Him. When we are passionate about who Jesus is, that transcends to the congregation we are leading and in turn causes them to become more passionate about what we are singing about– JESUS.
So, short and sweet: let’s lead passionately this week! It does not matter whether you are singing, playing, teaching, running lights, running camera (and I could go on and on) – You can lead. Be bold, own the position you are in and rest in the fact that God has you there for a purpose. Let’s lead out of passion for who Jesus is together this week!
Be on guard. Stand firm in the faith. Be courageous. Be strong. (1 Corinthians 16:13)
