Joe Cameneti Jr. of allaboutworship.com talks about when worship leaders start worshiping the act of leading worship:
I’m convinced that songwriters, worship leaders and even music enthusiasts can fall so in love with the act of worship that it can become just that… simply an act.
I want to be sure that you understand my heart in saying this. I love worship. I love “worship artists.” And more than anything, I love The Church. But I see a tendency in my own walk with God to lose site of what worship is all about, and I thought it
might be a good idea to think out loud amongst friends.
I’m not suggesting this is an issue for every worship leader. It’s possible that this tension most commonly exists in writers and those who enjoy to create. But it’s an undeniable reality in the circles I seem to find myself in.
