(A VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SONG, by Ken Bible; p.19)
As many suggest, it is vital that our worship services remind people of the reality of God’s
presence. But remember, God is always with us, not just on Sunday morning, and we realize
His presence, not by emotion, but by faith.
For example, consider how Christ mentored His disciples. Was it by leading them into a big
emotional worship experience? Perhaps once, on the mount of transfiguration, with only three
disciples, immediately before His death. But His focus was on nourishing their faith and a
constant relationship with the Father. Jesus’ strength was fed, not by emotional pit-stops, but by
a life of prayer and by constant trust in His Father. That’s what He wanted for His disciples as
That should be our deepest desire, both for ourselves and for those to whom we minister.
Refocus your worship on nurturing a relationship with the Living God, a relationship of faith, for
that relationship is life’s greatest treasure, now and forever.
