“Make a joyful moise unto the Lord, all ye lands. Serve the Lord with gladness; come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord is God; it is He that has made us and not we ourselves; we are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise; be thankful unto Him, and bless His name. For the Lord is good: His mercy is everlasting, and his truth endures to all generations.” -- Psalm 100 (all verses, 1 –…Continue

My story before we go further, I am part of an amazing plus 70 member choir for close to 5 years now and I also play percussion in the band. In my second year in the choir I was just a choir member not even a vocalist or would be able to get close to being a background vocalist or let alone lead the choir during devotions. I went to small little church and long story short they heard that I was from the big choir and they said now you teach us to worship and before I knew it they…Continue

This week I watched an old king movie with 5 tribe and clan leaders fighting for the throne of the king in that kingdom, some were legitimate others were not but what got me thinking is that a lot of the troubles, challenges and problems depicted in the movie are pretty much still being faced in today society.
Walk in the streets of your city, area, neighbourhood and look at the faces of the people.…

Worship is giving, offering, presenting glory, honour, majesty, power and worth to Him who seats on the throne and this is done in various ways. One would use music, one could serve God, one would minister to God, surrender his or her life towards God, one would kneel, one would dance and one would live his life consecrated for God. There are many ways to express our worship. Worship starts from the heart and we use whatever we have to express it to God.
Today when I read…Continue

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 in turn 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 angel visits them again so that they can learn how to…Continue

Everyone desires to go deeper with the Lord, we experiment with a lot of things, ways, means and all we try to do is take our worship deeper. We try looping songs, we try singing like Hillsong, studying music notes playing like Paul Baloche and we spend all our time practicing and sharpening skill. All in the desire to do is to take my worship deeper.

Obedience according to the Sage Dictionary is the act of obeying, dutiful or submissive with respect to someone else. It is a characteristic that we have to learn on our own, someone said God is always talking what He is looking for is just a willing life to listen and…Continue
Here are a few ideas for visual worship for One Thing Remainsby Kristian Stanfill. It’s a great song that we recommend to any worship community.I believe that visual media can strengthen the message of a song, or if used improperly can be incredibly distracting. It is our hope that these videos help you choose content that is powerful and points worshipers to God. While there are many versions of this song out there (Jesus Culture, Bethel) we’ve…Continue
Worship goes beyond songs, words, notes, chords and instruments. Worship means to pay homage, falling before someone feet, glorifying a deity, honor paid to dignity, kind of reverence ascribing worth. Genesis 22:5 that was the first mention of the word Worship in the Bible, it denoted sacrifice and obedience.
Worship in today’s ages and to some people means songs and music, that is 3 praise song and 3 worship songs if there are more than 6 songs at your church…

Many believers struggle with knowing what is appropriate as far as music used in worship. Unfortunately, many Pastors seldom preach about worship and may have done little study of the subject. Other Pastors or Evangelists may have very limited preferences for what they feel is appropriate and preach these preferences as gospel. God's people are often left confused or very opinionated about what is appropriate based upon their own preferences or upon what they have heard. In over 30 years…Continue
The glory of the Lord is what we live for, to bring him glory. In old English they would say glory is to ascribe or give back the honour and splendor to him who deserves it. Glory in Hebrew and Greek speaks of splendor, light, rarity, honour beauty and abundance.
God is already full of glory (honour, power, majesty, rarity) and there is nothing we can do to change it. He already receives perfect worship from all angels and heavenly beings. We can not change that and we can’t…Continue

Being a child of God and being called a Christian qualifies a person to be a worshipper, whether you have a sweet voice or a horsey voice, whether you can dance or you have CRD (Caucasian Rhythm Disorder) in God’s books you qualify as a worshipper.
The name of a person reveals their character and the quality of worship reveals the character of a worshipper. Just like the names of God reveal his character and a worshipper is known his or her…Continue

Worship is a lifestyle not mean to be a Sunday event, it is a daily experience which we are committed to for the rest of our existence, so if you don’t go to church does that mean that in that week, or if you relocate away from church then you will not worship.
Worship goes beyond geographical boundaries, atmospheres, locations, prayer, churches and any kind of meetings. We worship God everywhere and anywhere, with lifted voices, with silent adoration, lifted hands,…Continue

Worship and Salvation are decisions that one has to make, no one makes the decision for you or sign on your behalf, they are all about you and God. God is looking to connect with men and especially with you. Men were created for fellowship with God and fellowship with God is one on one.

The idea of worship is that one prostrates himself before a superior being with an attitude of awe, respect, honour and homage. It is amazing the things that can be unlocked just through reverence.
“Let us worship with reverence and awe for our God is a consuming fire”. Hebrews 12:29
Reverence means to show respect or fear, a common way in Israel to show reverence was “falling down,” “lying on the ground facedown” as prostration of the body…Continue

Worship is all about surrender, giving clearance for a higher authority to take over your life, surrendering our lives, jobs, family and our destinies to the power of God. That worship.
Surrender according to dictionary means:
Give up possession of something: to relinquish possession or control of something because of coercion or force, surrender territory, surrender your passport
Declare yourself defeated: to declare to an…
“Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place, He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully”, Psalms 24:3
Worship is the vehicle that is at the centre of God and it should be at the centre of our lives also. God doesn't want men standing before Him and worshipping Him but carrying unforgiven sin and unforgiveness full in our lives. The bible tells us that God hates the sin…

Always ask yourself am I prepared to Worship God anytime, anyplace, anywhere?
When we worship our minds think about God, we offer ourselves to Him our emotions and we open our hearts with our bodies expressing to all this by actions. Which means that worship is not just a mouth but it’s about your spirit, soul and body all focused to lift up his name. If you check yourself and see that you are missing one part then there is something you need to work…Continue

The question, Who or what Directs Worship
Ever thought of it, Is it the metronome, the beat, kick drum, the singer, the chior. If not then what drives worship
Worship is not about you and your needs, it isn’t about how we feel or have an idea about but it should be a place where God is lifted up the way he wants. Worship was set by God to be a place where we commune with God, enjoy his presence and also to become more like God because when we spent more time in…Continue
