It can be so easy to get caught up in sounds, gear, and creative excellence, all of which, I believe, are important and worthy investments. The danger, though, is that we miss the real point of worship and get distracted by lesser things. Worship is an invitation to participate with Christ in thanksgiving to the Father in the power of the Spirit. We cannot worship without the Holy Spirit. Philippians 3:3 reminds us that it is "we who worship by the Spirit of God" (NIV). On this theme John Stott writes, "What we need is not more learning, not more eloquence, not more persuasion, not more organization, but more power from the Holy Spirit."
