Simplicity

I have been thinking about what it means to be a lead worshipper… either at church or at work or at school or in a restaurant… wherever.

For me, it is simply never losing sight of where God is in my life. I am not wealthy. I do not live in a fancy home or drive the car of my dreams. But I am so incredibly cared for! God has blessed me with the perfect mate, a great family and job. He has allowed me to learn to do things that have become my passion. I have the greatest friends that money cannot buy.

But what if I was alone? What if my job was not so good? What if I had no family that cared about me? Well, I hope that I would strive to find God’s purpose for that in my life. It is what we have done through some pretty tough times. Rather than think that God was vacant in the situation, we learned to search for Him and His purpose. It gave us comfort. Hopefully, it brought Him glory.

Sunday mornings we are people that show up in the same building with hundreds of other people. Some of us are fighting loneliness, depression, anger, despair… None of us know what is going on behind the eyes of those we come in contact with. We have 30 minutes to help them get a glimpse of God… to bring them closer to the Throne of the King. When I can let go of my own insecurities and really seek the God that has cared for me so graciously, I have a much better chance of being someone that can show Him to those that are hurting or seeking Him for those 30 minutes.

That is the heart of why I do this. How about you? How do you see yourself being used to bring people to a place of worship?

  1. So good, Mark! “When I can let go of my own insecurities and really seek the God that has cared for me so graciously, I have a much better chance of being someone that can show Him to those that are hurting or seeking Him for those 30 minutes.” I love that.

    It is almost selfish of me to hold onto my insecurities. It hinders me from allowing God to do whatever He wants through me, as I cling to the worry of what others might think of me.
