If you want to be unique, just do what everyone else is doing.
I know that sounds absolutely ridiculous but when you think about it, how many people/churches have you come across that, in their pursuit of “uniqueness” have just ended up looking like all of the other “Unique” people/churches?
My struggle, in a creative environment such as worship ministry, is that when I see something cool that someone else is doing, I don’t just celebrate the fact that God gave them a different set of skills/talents/people, I feel like I have to replicate it myself. This is not how God designed us to behave with the gifts and talents He gave us.He gave us all different gifts and different passions so that we can express our true hearts to Him in our own way.
Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.
See? It’s not about what Hillsong or Jesus Culture is doing right now. Worship is about the state of your heart in response to God. We can draw inspiration from other creatives but we don’t have to be confined to THEIR creative environment. Free yourself and your mind to express yourself to God in your own way.
Worshiper- You are unique. God made you unique. Express yourself.
