Knowing What You Don’t Know

As a worship leader, you know that it’s important to grow as a singer, as a musician… and to do that, you need true humility. A real humility that says “I want to learn!”

I find that what often keeps us from growing is: 1) denial there’s anything wrong, 2) arrogance, and sometimes 3) ignorance of what we don’t know. It’s all a part of what we might call “the flesh.”

I see it in my kids, who often seem to know everything. It’s amazing! And actually, this “I know it all” attitude rises up in all of us constantly, including me. Sometimes I cut people off with a “yeah, I know, I know.” But the truth is, I don’t know.

I see so many singers and musicians who really are called to do music… they love music more than the average person, they have a message they want to get out, they are fulfilled when they do music. Yet being on the platform in front of people is the last thing they understand!

They don’t realize one of the things they really need to learn is to be comfortable moving onstage! Watch this clip from my Expressive Worship 1 DVD:


I want to know what it is I don’t know. And I want to be humble enough to grow as a teacher, a husband, a dad, a person, a Christian!

How about you? If God has called you to be on the platform, are you willing to walk in the authority He has called you to? Are you ready to learn?
