I’m playing keys for worship tomorrow at Bellevue Christian Center, and I’m excited.
Among other great songs, we’re doing a number that is fairly new to us… Place of Freedom from Highlands Worship.
This is such an easy song to pick up and learn, which makes it easy to get past worrying about the music and get into expressing our hearts in worship.
It’s sometimes difficult to get past the technical details, the particular notes and riffs, the structure of the performance: “verse, chorus, verse two, chorus twice, instrumental, bridge, build up, break, chorus with drums only, chorus, ending, soft intimate chorus, real ending”
We go through that, hit every beat, every note, every peak and valley of dynamics… and in the end, did we encounter Christ or enjoy a concert?
Tomorrow, I intend to lift my hands and reach for Him, shout His praise, sing my song like I am unashamed, and shout for joy at the mention of His name.
I’m coming to worship and then to hear from Him through His Word.
How about you? Why are you going to church tomorrow?
