The Mind of Christ
Worship leaders and musicians in the church need to be spiritual before musical. They need to strive to immerse themselves in spiritual disciplines to grow closer to Christ.
This means spending time in prayer and Bible study, reading books and articles about worship, and attending worship services at their local church. It also means living a life that is pleasing to God and that reflects His love to others.
When worship leaders and musicians are spiritually mature, they are better able to lead others in worship. They are also better able to discern God's will for their lives and for the church.
Here are some practical ways for worship leaders and musicians to grow spiritually:
Voice of Discipleship
Music is a powerful tool that can be used for good or evil. It can be used to inspire and uplift, or it can be used to manipulate and control. In the church, we believe that music can be used as a tool for discipleship.
Discipleship is the process of learning and growing in our relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a lifelong journey that involves following His teachings, obeying His commands, and living a life that is pleasing to Him.
Music can be a powerful tool in the discipleship process. It can help us to learn about God's Word, to remember His promises, and to apply His teachings to our lives. It can also help us to connect with other believers and to build a strong community of faith.
When we sing songs about God's love, His faithfulness, and His salvation, we are reminded of His great promises. When we sing songs about His character, we are challenged to reflect His love and compassion to others. And when we sing songs about His call on our lives, we are encouraged to live a life that is pleasing to Him.

We are also helping to build a strong community of faith that is committed to following Jesus Christ.
