Sing the Wondrous Love of Jesus
The love that we sing about in worship songs describes the amazing, astounding, overwhelming, wondrous love of God. We need to make sure that we give our congregations space to wonder at the height, depth, and breadth of God’s love for us. Our capacity to understand His love can be expanded in so many creative ways during corporate worship.
To communicate the wondrous love of Jesus, we primarily use the lyrics of the song as the tool to do this. Worship leaders should be vigilant about choosing words that we ask the congregation to sing. Giving people the opportunity to remind themselves, express gratitude for, or loudly proclaim over their lives the wondrous love that Jesus has for them is a responsibility that we should not take lightly.
These moments are not just for the individual, but can additionally be moments to lift, encourage, and challenge the church body as a whole. Standing with generations of family members or spiritual mentors while proclaiming this amazing love is good for our children to do and see. Seeing the passionate faith of young people can also inspire those who are older.
As we lead worship, let’s focus on inspiring the congregation to appreciate and understand fully the wondrous love that Jesus has for them. Through the lyrics and music that we present, let’s point the congregation toward that love, as this is what will make all the difference in their lives.
