For many of us, Easter weekend serves as a real reminder of what Christ has done on the cross. Churches are usually packed, extra services are sometimes added while cantatas, plays, and productions are now common to see.
With all that comes the pressure to perform, the commitment of extra time, and the stress of pulling it all off flawlessly.
So as we reflect on this past weekend, what stands out in your mind? Let’s talk about the cross, let’s talk about what you/your church did for Easter, and of course, your role in these services as worship drummers. Did you serve in other capacities? Did you drum for 4 straight services? And what were the results of all the effort?
For me, being a pastor, I didn’t get to drum. Instead I preached a Good Friday youth rally and was able to rejoice with 7 others that gave their lives to Christ. Then for our Sunday service, I played keys (I play drums, keys, and acoustic guitar fairly well).
What I realized more than ever, is that…
- We need to be willing to serve Jesus and His church
- Sometimes that means that I won’t get to play drums because there might be a greater need for my gifts and talents. (see Romans 12:4-8)
So whether you played drums or not, I’d love to hear how you served on Easter weekend and what fruit/results did you see for the glory of God.
