“Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves.”
These, and similar verses, sum up the culture of ‘team’ that we’ve been building in our worship team at Family Church. It’s not about the job we’re doing but who we’re doing it with and who we’re doing it for. God looks not for how well you play or sing but how you love and treat those you do life with.
“Therefore if you bring your gift to the altar, and there remember that your brother has something against you, leave your gift there before the altar, and go your way. First be reconciled to your brother, and then come and offer your gift.”
Matthew 5:23-24, NKJV
God’s kingdom is built upon the values of love and selflessness, grace and serving. Even how well we play or sing should be motivated by love – a much stronger motivation than the desire to be a great musician or singer.
Grow in honour
Choose to keep growing in honouring each other – keep away from gossip, don’t listen to negative talk, speak encouragement, show grace, cheer each other on.
Let’s continue to honour our leaders, the team leaders and our pastors – get behind their vision, don’t let cynical or undermining talk flourish, but speak highly of them.
Let’s show honour to our congregations as we lead them, giving our very best to serve them (especially when it seems like they’re not even slightly interested in engaging in worship!).
Honour is worship
Honour reveals the value we feel for something or someone. In honouring each other we recognise the value that God has placed on each individual life, and it becomes part of our worship life.
Question: What do you do in your worship team to honour other team members, or church leaders?
