I have had the honor and the privilege to sing and lead worship in several churches and it is an experience I will never forget. To see God, move by his Spirit in the congregation in drawing men unto Him and healing them is so precious that there are no words to fully describe it. We must lift Him up and give Him the glory.
Below is a playlist of worship songs from the late 70’s to 90’s. This list is an example of worship songs that were sung throughout the world in churches and concerts. Worship is all about to whom we are worshiping. Worship is giving thanks and praise to a Holy God. To see Him high and lifted up is the goal of worship. Listen to the words of Jesus himself . . .
“And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, I will draw all men unto me.”John 12:32
To define worship is to have reverence and adoration for the Lord God and his son Jesus Christ. This is to whom we worship. Reverence and adoration for who He is and what He has done for each of us is why we worship him. God so loved the world in that He gave us His only Son that we might be saved. If focus is on something else other than our blessed Lord God, it is no longer called worship, it is called idolatry/paganism. Let us sing to the Lord with a pure heart of worship. Below I share my playlist of three hours of worship songs to sing unto the Lord God. The Playlist titled, “Songs of Worship for All Time,” is a set list of songs of worship that will help you get into the spirit of worship. This playlist has 3 hours and 30 minutes of worship songs. May His Spirit touch your heart and soul as you spend time in worshipping Him, the one and only true God. Please share this playlist with others.
In recent years I have heard about Christian Artist who are not Christians or even real musicians. There are many charlatans in the world today that deceive others in order to get fame, recognition, and money. These are those who want to receive glory for themselves. They may think that they are wise in their own craftiness, but God knows their hearts. All glory belongs to the Lord and the apostle Paul warns us by stating, “let no man glory in men.” Let us give glory to the Lord God. Giving Him thanks for all He has done.
Worship is not about the band, player’s, or singer’s, these are servants of the Lord, and true servants who claim to be worshipers must worship Him in spirit and in truth [see John 4:24]. There must be truth in our conscious mind in the knowledge of who we are and who God is. Our God is concerned for our soul and spirit and the way to peace is through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Recent years have also seen an influx of worship songs that are questionable because there is no mention of God, Lord, or Jesus Christ. In fact, the songs have no depth and meaning. Many of these songs can be classified as simple love songs that can be sung to an individual’s partner or husband and wife. It is so easy to get caught up into the music alone without even looking at the words. If you are a worship leader, check with your pastor and examine the lyrics of the songs you sing to see if it is doctrinally sound. Include hymns in your repertoire along with early Maranatha, Integrity, and Vineyard music. I remember that early worship songs were based upon a scripture verse, but today this is not always the case. Take a look at the lyrics of my album titled “Send the Light,” album page as an example of how scripture verse fits into the song sung. Remember to whom you are worshiping and be true to yourself and God.
