I've been visiting this particular page every morning trying to find some inspirational, motivational, and reviving message/blog from different Church Leaders.
Today, I got a chance to read the blog about "What Will People Say When They Leave Your Service Tomorrow?"
Every Sunday, Me, as an attender in our church, tries to attend and praise God with an expectation that hopefully this will be a different sunday. That this sunday will be a fruitful sunday.
I used to ask that may God shower His Holy Spirit in our church so that the Worhip will be memorable.
I used to hope that the Worship leader will sing something new, that will uplift my spirit.
As a Song Leader, I used to pray that God will move so that the attenders will feel His presence.
Most of the time we ask God to move us or to move in the midst of us so that we will be able to feel Him. Yet, we are not doing much effort to show that we want to feel God's presence.
It is said that God can fill an empty heart, how will that happened if our hearts are filled will hatred, worries, doubt.
Just like the story of this blog. If as an attender, we are focused on the Preacher and not the Lesson or on how the Song Leader sings, then how are we going to feel God's Love?
On the other hand, as a Song Leader, if we are so focus on what the attenders will think or say or feel we tend to forget the reason why we are in front.
Sunday service is not to serve ourselves, it is the day for us to serve the Lord and not the other way around.
Try to check this blog and reflect:
Where your focus is, defines how you serve the Lord.
