In this series we will study Paul’s 1st letter to Timothy, who was pastoring the church in the city of Ephesus. We will specifically key in on applications and lessons that apply to worship ministry and worship leaders. Today we will look at our calling as worship leaders.
“PAUL, AN APOSTLE OF CHRIST JESUS ACCORDING TO THE COMMANDMENT OF GOD OUR SAVIOR, AND OF CHRIST JESUS,WHO IS OUR HOPE”
1 Timothy 1:1
Paul was writing to Timothy, who he had sent to pastor and lead the church in Ephesus. What’s interesting in this verse is that recognizes his calling. For him it was being apostle, for us it’s to lead the church in song worship.
Whatever you do, whoever you are, God has specific callings on our lives. Mine is to be primarily a pastor/teacher and worship leader. By the grace of God I am what I am (1 Co 15:10), and I stand in that grace and calling.
Even if you are an “Accidental Worship Leader” or you’re in a season where you feel like you’re on the bench, God has a calling for you.
