There is nothing like leading others in praise and worship.
Taking others into a place of intimacy with God where we all praise and speak highly of our God and King.
Helping usher in God's presence before the preached word comes forth.
It is not a ritual. It is not ceremonious. It is not just another part of service.
Praise and worship is a privilege. God's people realize their inferiority before the Superior One.
I do not claim to be the greatest pianist or vocalist in the world, but it is a privilege to use what God has given me to make melodies and songs all speaking highly of Him.
Then, to look into the crowd and see hands and voices lifted. It is a blessing.
