This is the second week in a study called This Is How We Roll. We are focused on some essentials for walking clean and close with the Lord this year. This Sunday we are highlighting worship. Since there are so many facets to worship, we are targeting this one dynamic – practicing and participating in uplifting worship. The key word is “uplifting.” Increasingly folks feel discouraged, disappointed, disheartened by our world. We want to be a place where people can reliably experience an uplifting encounter with the Lord. We want to embrace being sensitive to God’s presence. One of my favorite things to remind people is wherever the presence of God is…anything can happen! Uplifting worship has great anticipation and open hands to receive whatever and however the Lord wants to work in our lives. And, we want learn to be uplifters. A great preacher once said, “in worship the songs AND the saints must be uplifters.” May we learn the language of uplifting worship and speak to one another with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19).
