I found myself more engaged in worship last night. I was sitting through my third service of the day...same band...same songs....same teaching....same teacher. Yet at the same time I found myself more engaged. There was a surge of redemptive energy flowing through my veins. Maybe it was because my wife, Tami was sitting beside me. She still has that affect on me. Sorry Tami I think that help, but frankly I found myself more engaged because sitting beside Tami was two friends who don't always attend church.
Then it hit me...Why are some people more engaged then others when it comes to our weekend services? It's simple they have more at stake. If you really want to inject new life into your own personal worship then make your worship about someone else. That's right invite a disconnected friend to church and then watch God work. I promise you your worship will be infused with power, expectation, desire, excitement, anticipation, energy, etc.
