As many of us are serving week after week, it’s very easy to get into a groove (to be read as “rut”) where we tell ourselves “I’ve got this!” The heart challenge will always be there to remain humble and remain hungry for the presence of God. Your role as a worshipdrummer is way more than just showing up to play for worship. It actually requires you to be a worshiper off the stage more than any thing you do on the stage.
I came across this post on the Hillsong Collected blog which sums it up quite nicely:
In worship, how do you know you’re leading people to the presence of God, if you’ve never been there yourself? Your own personal devotion or your secret place is totally where worship should start.
Let’s keep our focus on exalting Jesus and making it all about him! after all, worship starts with you and God, way before you ever take your seat behind your kit!
