Bro. Ken Cowan - Worship Leader



God tells us in His Word, "Let the peace of Christ keep you in tune with each other, in step with each other. None of this going off and doing your own thing. And cultivate thankfulness. Let the Word of Christ—the Message—have the run of the house. Give it plenty of room in your lives. Instruct and direct one another using good common sense. And sing, sing your hearts out to God! Let every detail in your lives—words, actions, whatever—be done in the name of the Master, Jesus, thanking God the Father every step of the way.” (Colossians 3:16,17).

Some of the greatest times I have had in church are when I worship, in song. Hymn, praise chorus, or song, it doesn’t matter when God shows up. Worship is a full response to His revealed greatness and glory. God is not looking for the “lost Ark”. He knows where that is. He is looking for the “lost worshippers” so he can replace the lost glory in the earth. John 4 :23-24 says “But the time is coming—it has, in fact, come—when what you're called will not matter and where you go to worship will not matter. It's who you are and the way you live that count before God.

Your worship must engage your spirit in the pursuit of truth. That's the kind of people the Father is out looking for: those who are simply and honestly themselves before him in their worship. God is sheer being itself—Spirit. Those who worship him must do it out of their very being, their spirits, their true selves, in adoration." In Acts 16: 19-34 Gods word tells us the story of Paul and Silas in a Philippians’ jail. You may be in jail even as you read this. There is a way to escape. Paul and Silas were not in a church or synagogue. They were beaten and bloodied with their feet locked in chains. In their most trying time, they began to pray and sing to the Lord in worship. They brought together their battered wings of worship and the Glory of the Lord descended from heaven. Their worship created a “mercy seat:” for God to come and sit between them.

If you are in a place of captivity as you read these words, there is a way to escape. Worship! Create a “mercy seat” for the Lord. God will come in power when we call on His name. Our worship sets the captives free.
