Christ-centred

The lyrics to Israel Houghton‘s great song “Jesus at the centre of it all” make this value so simple to understand: “It’s all about You, it’s always been about You, everything revolves around You” Christ is the centre of all creation, of all that we are, of all that’s been and is to come. For

Experience is key

Experience can make the difference in someone’s life. If you have a bad or good experience, you remember it, and it colours your view of that place or event for years to come. We had an interesting experience with two restaurants when I took my wife Ali out for her birthday a couple of years

A good report

In Numbers 13, spies are sent into the Promised Land, and they return with fruit they’ve found and a report of what’s ahead. Two spies – Caleb and Joshua – give a good report, but the other ten spies give a bad report. That bad report spreads like wildfire throughout the nation – around 6

Zeal

Psalm 69:9 (NIV) says this: “Zeal for your house consumes me”. In the New Century Version, that verse reads, “My strong love for your temple completely controls me”, and the New King James translates that last part as “has eaten me up”. David describes his passion for God and God’s House VERY clearly in this

Consider the cost

In Luke 14:28, Jesus speaks about the wisdom of not just having a plan, but making sure you can pay the cost required to bring that plan to fruition. There is a cost involved, for each of us, to walk in what God has called us to – and it’s a different cost for each

Responsive

There are many ways that we can be responsive as a worship team. First and foremost, we must be spiritually responsive to God’s voice – we must be listening to Him, have our ear tuned to His direction (and away from our own soulish ambition or opinion). We must be ready to respond to Him
