"The Holy Spirit cannot resist unity"
It isn’t the Holy Spirit likes or enjoys unity, it cannot resist unity. Of course, the Holy Spirit likes and enjoys unity, but the fact that it is drawn so tightly to unity is such a crazy idea. I’m a huge team person, I love teams and the environment that it creates so this idea is mind-blowing for me. In a basketball team, for example, the relationships between the players are genuine and loving and they learn how to win together. Now, imagine the Holy Spirit part of this united team!!! Relationships would be even deeper and even more real. The wins we would get would be for God and for his kingdom, making it so much more glorious. Knowing that the Holy Spirit is in the unity that has been created means that we can do CRAZY stuff. It means that we have so much more authority in God and we are capable of doing more than we can ever imagine as humans or by ourselves. With unity, we are empowered by and with the Holy Spirit.
freaking fun weekend of all play and no work
the idea of being complete; of fulfilling who you were created to be
It’s been about 2 weeks filled with worship; listening to it, playing it, soaking in it and I’ve been reminded of what worship is and how it affects my life. I’ve been super blessed with a team that’s crazy talented and supportive and who push me to be a better player and a better worshipper.
Things I’ve learned and have been reminded of this past quarter:
-Worship is for an audience of one, God. It is to praise and glorify Him
-Worship is a lifestyle; an overflow of what God has been doing in my life
-Worship is about your heart more than anything else
-The more I know about God, the better worshipper I become. The time spent in learning my instrument should be the same amount of time I spend learning about doctrine
-Sometimes God chooses to work in the most unprepared parts rather than the prepared parts
-Encouragement can go a long way
-Hard work is better than talent that doesn’t work
-I don’t have to be the best, I just have to do my best
-You’re good enough. You’re good enough. God created you to be more than enough.
-All the worship team is really doing is worshipping first
-Community can make a world of difference
