Distractions In Worship

So many times we look to the external things that will distract our worship. So many times we look at the external factors, like band, my voice isn’t plus I have a cold and most of the time we blame it on the sound guys, things went that bad because we couldn’t hear ourselves onstage, no air conditioning was off and we were cold.

 

So many times we look for someone to blame for the things that go wrong in our lives even in our worship. What are some of the things that hold us…

Worship Leader Watering Holes

In the late 1980's I had an Integrity cassette subscription and received a new recording every other month.  Others had similar subscription with Vineyard.  By the mid 1990's it was more a matter to go to the local Christian book store and buy CDs from these publishers and the new comer - WorshipTogether joined the rank by the end of the 90's.  This pretty much continued for most of the first decade of the new millennium.  Now you go there and find a few oldies in the $4.99 bin.

The Worship Is Not In The Bowing.

 

So the big question was why do I have to do it, they say raise your hand and bow down but I don’t think that matter you know. God is looking at my heart and he is not worried about what I do. So I thought of it and just searched about this presumption and this is what I found out. 

 

The worship is not in the bowing but the worship is in the condition of the heart that the whole story here. God sees your worship in the attitude of bowing. In my culture bowing…

Strings Attached Worship

 

Arm Twist Worship and Worshipping for a breakthrough or worshipping without string attached out of love, no obligations.

 

God knows all our desire before we even ask for them in prayer, even in fasting and I always says that it is better to come before the Lord and worship Him out of the abundance of your heart and not hold back.

 

Arm Twist worship as I call it, is when we worship the Lord because we need deliverance, I worship the Lord big time when I…

The Sacrificial Part of Worship: Lessons From Manoah

The Sacrificial Part of Worship



 



In Judges 13 we meet the story of Samson’s birth when an angel came to announce the call of Samson upon Manoah’s wife. The Angel told her she was to conceive and bear a child and no razor would touch his head. She inturn told the Manoah about the visitation.



 



Manoah was absent when the angelic visitation happened to his wife but regardless He chose to entreat (beseech, request for earnestly) God in his own place that the…

Hate Mail/Owership vs. Possession

I heard a funny little story from my brother who is a also a worship pastor this week.  That one of his friends was always getting "HATE MAIL" .  I just laughed because as worship leaders we know that this is so true... How many of you get hate mail?  What are some of the comments that you get? 

Now, we know that some churches take it all to a new level. 

Lets take a look for a moment.

Ownership vs. Possession or possessiveness. 

Ownership in my way of…

Why Worship Wars Wont Work

We are busy killing each other in the churches which type of worship or music should be the one that is acceptable and does it fit the right in to the doctrine of the church and the founding fathers of the ministry. I have realized that God receives all offering and sacrifices but what is important is does your sacrifice bring glory to God?

 

Instead of us fighting and causing churches to split because we are not agreeing with everyone why can’t we not spend our time in asking…

What songwriters do when bored

 (pleased don't tell Michael Neale or Natalie Grant what I did to their song).

Oh The Taste of Coffee (sung to the tune of Your Great Name)

I take mine black, no half and half, Oh the taste of coffee

When it’s hot, I drink a lot, of the taste of coffee

Take a big slug from my big mug, oh the taste of coffee

Fresh grounded beans, how I need caffeine, oh the taste of coffee

(Chorus) Folgers, or maybe Maxwell House,

In the kitchen or even on the couch

Lift…

The Heart, the Mouth and the Worship

So many times we are fighting a lot amongst ourselves what is the best genre or music loops to use for our denominations some call it worship wars. Today let’s look at our own inner and individual worship wars. The heart, the mouth and the worship

The heart

It’s difficult to say which is the best body part or organ but the heart takes the crown for me, it does unimaginable job. But the heart is the core of everything, it’s the core of Christianity and it’s the…

MapleLeaf Spring 2014 Newsletter

Dear Friends in Christ,

    I don’t know about you, but I am kind of glad to see spring is finally on it’s way to Buffalo Mills, PA.  It was a tough winter with all the snow and ice, but a lot of good things happened at New Life Bible Camp in spite of the bad weather. Snow did not force any retreat group to have to cancel and we praise the Lord for this. 

     The hosted retreat in March were very well attended, and by the comments that I heard or received through e-mail…

What’s Gone Wrong With The Worship Of Today

Worship or act of worship with time developed and has become better and in that same place we have lost the potency of worship. God’s ways always bring grace and 

 

Worship is the place where God meets man, which is the point of contact as men lift him up He dwells in the praise Psalms 22:3. When he is lifted up He draws all men unto himself and our worship today lacks that element of God. As the church, with a capital “C” body of Christ we are slowly losing the potency of…

Worship Is and Can Be Dangerous Part 4

 Worship is and can be dangerous to everyone around you especially if it is bounces from heaven. We have to take time to learn how to handle a knife before we can use it. Worship is a great blessing to the body of Christ as it allows us direct access to the throne room anytime of the day but it can also destroy us if handled wrongly just like knife.

Today we start in 1 Samuel 13 where we meet King Saul facing war with the Philistines and they set a very huge…
