The Danish Philosopher, Kierkegaard, compared worship to a dramatic production.
In worship, it often seems as though the worship leader is the actor and God is the prompter, whispering into his ear, telling him what dto do next. The congregation listen and, at the end, the ‘applaud’ if they like the way he’s led worship, or throw things if they don’t!
But Kierkegaard said that’s all back to front. In reality, God is the audience, the congregation are the actors, and the person leading the worship is the prmopter, simply keeping the production going.
So when we come together to worship, we come wanting to please God alone, offering him our very best.
