STEP ONE ...
Remember the goal of worship is to encounter God and respond to the encounter. There is a rhythm to the encounter/response of worship.
The worshipper can not proceed in worship if a response is not made to an encounter with God. Look at Isaiah 6 and see how in the holiness encounter with God Isaiah recognized his sin and was forgiveness. If Isaiah had not made that response he would not have had the second encounter the call to service.-
The goal is always the same but the theme may change.
One Sunday it may be God, or Jesus, and then grace, or faith, sometime forgiveness. It is important to know the theme which can come from
the pastor?s sermon and scriptures,
the Sunday School material,
where the worshippers are at this particular time of the year
and particular situations in the church families lives.
Once the goal is solidly in mind, and the theme is determined, then it is time, through the Holy Spirits leadership, to chose the music.
