Clear the Stage: Worship Unplugged

Lights, Sound, Video, Great Bands, Great Vocals, Exciting Environments…. What exactly constitutes “Great Worship”? The answer… None of These. As you all know I am a HUGE supporter of a church being on the cutting edge of Media, using everything within their power (and often time budgets!) to be as creative and relevant to today’s church goers as possible, especially the younger generation. It is often times this relevant environment that brings these young people into church to begin with. With so many things clamoring for their attention on a daily basis a church must use relevant and creative ways of reaching out and drawing in. Often times however I look around and wonder how many of the people who have been coming for a week, two weeks, or even ten years are really worshipping God? Are they raising their hands and singing because they are doing it to God? Or is it that the environment creates the “need” to put up their hands. Are they coming weekly because they enjoy the funny videos and great singing and music? How many of these people continue, not just initially, come to services to be social and have a good time with friends?

Just listen to this, it really impacted me last night (maybe not the greatest music in the world, but the lyrics speak volumes)

    Thanks for sharing. That was great. And it is so true, we get wrapped up in the lights and sound and the “entertainment” of worship and forget the whole purpose is for God to work in us and on us. We fail Him when we are more concerned with the way it sounds than the motive behind it. Thanks again for sharing.

    So true! GOD is looking for a heart that is truly seeking for HIM! Be Blessed!

    THat’s a great song! We had “acoustic” worship for a few minutes Sunday when the power was lost to the main sanctuary! The words to the song are so true. We need to re-evaluate ourselves and ask why we worship and for who….
