One of the most inspiring things about Pastor Steven’s leadership is how seriously he takes preaching the word of God, no matter the event or venue. When he stands on stage, he has saturated his heart and focused his mind on some key Scriptures that prepare him for what God has called him to do in that moment. He talks about that in the new Sun Stand Still short film called FAITH CONFESSIONS. If your role in ministry requires you to stand on a stage and preach or lead worship, you should stop what you are doing and watch it now.
His example has really challenged us as worship leaders to do the same. One of the Scriptures that I meditate on going into the weekend is John 3:30 – He must become greater; I must become less.
It is such an important reminder for me that my role as a worship leader is to draw people’s attention to Jesus, not my skill or performance. I should definitely bring my best because God deserves excellence, but the goal in that is to make the name of Jesus great and not my own.
So what are some of the Scriptures that mean the most to you as you prepare your heart for worship? How do you align your heart with God’s heart?
