In the famous clip above, Julia Roberts character (a super-famous rich actress) tells Hugh Grants character (essentially a nobody)…
“The fame thing isn’t really real, you know. Don’t forget I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.”
Worship leaders and musicians have so often gravitated to a rock-star mentality, caring too much about image and ‘product’. Churches and conferences need to have big lights and staging to be taken seriously.
I believe Jesus is calling for the church to just stand in front of him as a his bride and seek is love.
Strip away self-image, self-promotion, products, packaging, presentation, and come back to heart of worship – simply a full hearted devotion of love to Jesus.
Let’s take away all that doesn’t really matter, and just stand before Jesus offering our love.
