Worship is the believer’s response to God’s revelation. It is a choice each believer makes as he or she goes through the day, and it can consist of everything from singing and praying to choosing the right attitudes and actions. Every moment is a chance to surrender to God, to worship God through everything we do. Eugene Peterson’s translation of Romans 12:1 puts it this way: “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.”
Something special, however, happens when God’s people get together for corporate worship. We gather together to focus on God collectively: to hear from God, to praise and thank God, to share in the Sacraments, to interact with God’s Word in preaching and teaching, to sing, to give our gifts and offerings to God... financial, time and talents... and to enjoy the fellowship of others. Worship is so much more than music.
Our role as worship leaders is to “tell the story” of God and His love for humanity. We invite people to enter into the story and to find their place in God’s story. It’s an invitation to something bigger than ourselves, to join in the “big picture” and not be stuck just in our place and time. And then to be sent out again into this world to bless and serve and work for justice and proclaim the Good News of Jesus throughout the week until we gather together again.
