It’s All About Me

Part 2 of 3

In part 1 we looked at vain worship. You can find that post here: Vanity
Today let’s talk a little about Self-Centered, or Egocentric worship.

Egocentric: centered in or arising from a person’s own existence or perspective.

It is all too easy to walk into a church, shake hands with your peeps, Sit down, stand up, sing a song, almost fall asleep, stand up, give 5 bucks, shake hands
again, then go home and live your week only to do it next Sunday, turn around and find that 40 years have passed and you have no idea where God went. See that? YOU wonder where God went? God didn’t go anywhere… Sometimes people want to worship God from where they are: comfortable and complacent, unaffected and uneffective. To lead worship we must lead others to a place of stepping off the cliffs… into the great unknown. Life changing worship happens when we seek God out, desperate to hear His voice and plumb His mysteries.

Jeremiah 29:12-13 ~ Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

When we think that we can worship God from where we sit, unwilling to move and be moved, we are mistaken. All we want is to go thru the 40 year safe plan. Approach worship as a way to push your own personal envelope. God will indeed grow you during intense worship. When you see God face to face you cannot help but be changed beyond what you are, and you will never be the same again.

  1. Having led worship for quite a few years now, I have learned a few things… Whenever I or you step up to lead God’s people, we need understand that first and foremost, it is NOT about you or I. I mean, in the smaller details, it is about you and I. Allowing God to change us so that we can be equipped to go out and change others… But once we step up to lead, it is not about us but about seeing other people changed. Seeing chains broken and lives really changed.. But honestly, the change begins with us. We need to be the hands and feet of Jesus. THEN we can teach Him.
