We’re going through a change at my church. Once again, we’re one man down on our pastoral team, and this time it’s the minister of music.
If you’ve been a member of any sort of church, you know how vital a music minister is.
So in this downtime, we’re adapting. One of the things that’s been done for the month of April is calling in local worship leaders Jonathan and Lisa Moore.
To have people so powerfully talented in our town is a HUGE blessing. They lead P&W all over the country as a ministry, and they happened to be available to fill in at our church for a month.
What.a.blessing. Did I mention?
My primary form of worship is through music. It moves me. It touches me. It brings me into the presence of our Lord like no other.
Here’s a taste of what Jonathan and Lisa can do from their album, Roots.
Sunday morning Jonathan and Lisa led us in a simple, slow, melodic song with the following lyrics:
A Wonderful God, A Wonderful God Is He
A Powerful God, A Powerful God Is He
A Marvelous God, A Marvelous God is He
Then Jonathan turned to the congregation and encouraged us to shout out the attributes of God. For each one that he heard, we sang as a church.
Hands lifted. Eyes closed. And in my case, tears flowed.
The moment was beautiful and personal, yet as we joined in corporate worship, the spirit moved in me and others. God was inhabiting the praises of His people as we listed all the adjectives that describe Him.
Share with me: If you could only sing one word to God in praise to Him today, what word would you choose?
