I was listening to live worship songs led by Kent Henry earlier today and I was led right back to times of worship in the past where there was so much hunger for God, such great desire to be pure and holy, and determination to be like Jesus. Something else also became very obvious to me – the fact that musical accompaniment was simple and was mainly in the background which naturally allowed the words to be in the foreground. What we say to God in worship was certainly far more important than what we play. There was so much more meaning to worship. The musical arrangement may not sound so cool by today’s standard, but it was hot – full of holy fire! It led me to ponder, what do worship teams focus on today? What are our priorities? Sometimes it just seems like we prefer hype to holy, and that’s just terrible.
