Heart of Worship

Song writer, Matt Redman’s church was struggling
to find truth worship in their services.

Reminding his church family to be producers in worship,
not just consumers, his pastor Mike Pilavachi, asked
"When you come through the doors on a Sunday,
what are you bringing as your offering to God?"
Pastor Mike said, we have lost our way in worship
and the way to get back is to strip everything away."
His pastor did a pretty brave thing and got rid
of the sound system and band for a season
with them gathering together with just their voices.
Initially there was embarrassing silence,
but eventually people broke into a capella songs
and heartfelt prayers, encountering God in a new fresh way.

Some of the words from the song "Heart of Worship"
written by Matt Redman :

I'm coming back to the heart of worship
And it's all about You
All about You, Jesus
I'm sorry Lord for the thing I've made it
When it's all about You
It's all about You Jesus

May new worship come out of hearts
everyday of our lives.

  1. Paul, thanks! Your post has helped me answer a question that's been on my heart. The question of motive.
