Ravi Zacharias on worship
It is imperative in planning the worship services that church leaders give careful attention to every element and make sure that the worship retains both integrity and purpose.
People come to church generally “beaten down” by the world of deceit, distraction, and demand. There is an extraction of emotional and spiritual energy that brings them on “empty” into the community.
The church’s task is to so prepare during the week that it is collectively the instrument of replenishment and fresh energy of soul. Even being in the presence of fellow believers in worship is a restorer of spiritual hope.
We so underestimate the power of a people in one mind and with one commitment. Even a prayer can so touch a hungry heart that it can rescue a sliding foot in a treacherous time.
– Ravi Zacharias, A Mighty Evangel, RZIM
