Philosophy of Worship
What is your philosophy of worship?

“Worship is the believers’ response of all that they are–mind, emotions, will, and body–to what God is and says and does: This response has its mystical side in subjective experience and its practical side in objective obedience to God’s revealed will. Worship is a loving response that’s balanced by the fear of the Lord, and it is a deepening response as the believer comes to know God better.” – Warren W. Wiersbe

Genesis 22, the first mention of the word “worship,” is in the account where Abraham was obedient to God when asked to sacrifice his son Isaac. In the Old Testament, atonement for sin was accomplished through the shedding of blood. First implemented after Adam and Eve’s original sin. A sacrifice of an animal was needed for forgiveness of sins. However,  in this story God was alluding to the fact that there would be a time where this practice would no longer be necessary.

In verse 8 when Abraham answers his son Isaac’s question about the lamb for the offering, he says to the boy: “God will provide for himself the lamb for a burnt offering…” We now on this side of Calvary know that Jesus, the pure and spotless lamb, came to earth to be the perfect sacrifice. To take away the sins of the world. So, instead of continuing in the practice of atoning sacrifices such as the law commands we know that Jesus has fulfilled the law and we now worship in Spirit and in truth.

Romans 12:1 We see that  “…in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Now in the light of God’s grace and Jesus’ perfect sacrifice and the Holy Spirit’s seal of promise because of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection; we no longer sacrifice animals for the remission of sins but we cling, in faith, to the work of God and the gift of salvation. Therefore, we offer our whole selves: heart, soul, mind and strength, in love, devotion, and obedience to Him, the King of Kings.

We worship God from a place of gratitude Knowing that Jesus has redeemed us and set us free from the bondage of sin and death. We now approach the throne of grace with boldness and joy knowing that we are loved and accepted by our Heavenly Father.

(Genesis 22, Genesis 3:21, Numbers 15, John 1:29, 1 Peter 1:19, Matthew 5:17-20, John 4:23-24, Ephesians 1:13, John 3:16, Hebrews 9:22, Matthew 22:37, Romans 8:2, Hebrews 4:16, Psalm 95:2, 1 John 3:1)

Ideal Relationship with Lead Pastor
How would you describe the ideal relationship between senior/lead pastor and worship leader?

I would consider a healthy relationship between a lead pastor and worship leader to be defined by mutual communication and service. Two individuals who model Romans 12 by dying to self and empowering the other to serve God’s people, encouraging the other in their faith. And when in disagreement, my role is to live Hebrews 13:17.
