Activity can so often be the enemy of worship.
We all know that over active lives mean that times of worship are squeezed out, even by noble work and serving our community.
Yet maybe the activity OF worship can be equally unhelpful. Where we feel we need to strive. Ramp it up. Increase production levels. Fight our way into the presence of God. Impress him with our energy and enthusiasm in a way that means he can’t help but “show up”.
No wonder so many worship leaders end up tired, exhausted, burnt out. No wonder so many worshippers become disillusioned by singing.
But what if there was a different starting point?
What if God was already here, and we were already loved, and that he doesn’t need impressing, and we don’t need to battle our way in?
How would that change the health of our worship and the health of our worship leaders?
Be still. Stop striving. Let go. Relax. Stop trying to impress.
God is here.
We are loved.
