“Worship Leaders Hit with Pandemic Burnout” — They’re burned out because it’s fake — not really worship

It’s not because of Covid. They’re burned out because it’s fake — not real worship. God requires worshipers worship in Spirit and in truth, which requires holiness, being right with God and others, like Paul always practiced (Acts 24:16). Then God responds with His love and glory, and it’s never boring, dull or unfulfilling.

Worship Leaders Hit with Pandemic Burnout

Music ministry has always been demanding, but the past two years have made it unsustainable for some.
|
JANUARY 26, 2022

Dianna Holden had been looking for an opportunity to step down as her church’s worship leader for a few years. After 27 years of serving, Holden felt like she was drawing from an empty well. … She didn’t have any reserves left.

(vid) Third Day: ‘Your Love Oh Lord’ LIVE

Your love, oh Lord
Reaches to the heavens
Your faithfulness
Stretches to the skies
Your righteousness is
Like the mighty mountain, yeah
Your justice flows like
The ocean’s tides

I will lift my voice
To worship You, my King
I will find my strength
In the shadow of Your wings

Second video below shows why the abrupt cut-off in this one.

Third video below shows lyrics.

Worship God in Spirit and in Truth — “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all”

WE MUST ABANDON THE FLESH AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT

1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

Galatians 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.

17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.

18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law.

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,

20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,

21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

(vid) Chuck Girard ministering in song & wisdom – CA Feb. 2016 — No reason to get puffed up, just “your reasonable service” • Entertainment “worship” • “People don’t want straight truth anymore” and more honesty

49:20 “There’s a scripture that says ‘when you have done all these different things that is such is your reasonable service.’ … When you get to the height of heights, there’s no reason for you to take any credit for it or feel like you did something because that’s just your reasonable service.

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. – Rom. 12:1

II 7:50 Most “worship” today is “entertainment worship,” people watching but not worshiping.

11:40 “People don’t want straight truth anymore. They want the ear tickling stuff” Continue reading “(vid) Chuck Girard ministering in song & wisdom – CA Feb. 2016 — No reason to get puffed up, just “your reasonable service” • Entertainment “worship” • “People don’t want straight truth anymore” and more honesty”

Chuck Girard: ‘Sometimes Alleluia’

Glorious, anointed, resting-in-God song from 1975 that I was blessed to experience as a young Christian! Christian music was awesome then, and will again be someday, when ‘ONE’ happens “that the world will know” (Jesus’ prayer in John 17)!

I was able to see Chuck a few years later, while attending the University of Minnesota — just him and a piano in the student union.

“Unmistakable background from Annie, Nell and Matthew.”

(music vid) Paul Clark: ‘Abide’ — “Your words are truth and life to me / It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide”

Four videos below:

Abide (Paul Clark)

The more I go on with you Lord
I find that I cannot afford
To stay away from your side
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

Your words are truth and life to me
They cleanse and sanctify me
I know it’s power can’t be denied
It’s in the Vine I’ll Abide

A child of God I know I am
I’ve been washed in the precious blood of the Lamb
But I haven’t touched the hole in His side
But in the vine I’ll Abide

To bring forth fruit this is my aim
And give the glory to Your name
To do the same you must decide
If in the Vine you’ll Abide

Jesus is the Vine

Lincoln Brewster: ‘Shout to the Lord’

“Shout To The Lord”
by Darlene Zschech

My Jesus, my Savior,
Lord, there is none like You;
All of my days
I want to praise
The wonders of Your mighty love.

My comfort, my shelter,
Tower of refuge and strength;
Let every breath, all that I am
Never cease to worship You.

Shout to the Lord, all the earth,
Let us sing
Power and majesty, praise to the King;
Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of Your name.

I sing for joy at the work of Your hands,
Forever I’ll love You, forever I’ll stand,
Nothing compares to the promise I have in You.

Lust Freedom: Worship the Creator, NOT the creation

LUST FREEDOM: worship the Creator, NOT people. Logos rising!

Anti-Logos TalmudVision promotes the exact opposite — a lust addicted planet:

“..although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him. Instead… they followed the lusts of their hearts and dishonored their bodies with one another. They exchanged God’s truth for a lie and worshipped and served the creation rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” (Rom. 1:21, 24-25)

Lincoln Brewster – ‘Love the Lord’ — “With all my heart, with all my soul, with all my mind, and with all my strength”

Love the Lord, your God, with all your heart
With all your soul, with all your mind
And with all your strength

With all your heart, with all your soul
With all your mind, with all your strength

I will serve the Lord with all my heart
With all my soul, with all my mind
And with all my strength

I will love You (I will love You)
I will praise You (I will praise You)
I will serve You (I will serve You)
I will trust You (I will trust You)

The Presence of the Lord Drew Keith Green’s Wife, Melody to Christ in 1975!

How is it okay that today’s ‘churches’ no longer have the presence of the Lord?

Melody says:

“In 1975…, I walked into a Bible study with Keith … during worship…, and I felt the presence of the Lord. And I thought ‘I don’t know what these people have, but I want it.’ … So it was the presence of the Lord that touched me before I ever heard the gospel. … So worship is an essential part. …

There’s something that the presence of God, and worship, and prayer touches in our spirit….”

James explains what has happened since 1975. God can’t live where people hate one another, raising unholy hands. Continue reading “The Presence of the Lord Drew Keith Green’s Wife, Melody to Christ in 1975!”

"WORSHIP is the SUBMISSION Of All Of Our Nature to God"

“Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God. It is the quickening of the conscience by his holiness; the nourishment of mind with his truth; the purifying of imagination by his beauty; the opening of the heart to his love; the surrender of will to his purpose–all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.”

– William Temple
