Ever feel overlooked? Ever feel the calling of God on your life but the opportunity to go into a greater sphere of leadership seems to evade you? In this episode we will discuss the powerful season of "waiting" and how God often uses it to shape his leaders.
Ever felt like the very hand of God seemed to be against you achieving higher levels of influence and leadership? Every seen others seem to rise and rise to new heights, transcending every obstacle, and expanding their spheres?
In this podcast we will discuss The Humility Principle.
Does the Bible give a threshold for women in leadership? What about those troubling passages like we find in 2 Timothy and 1 Corinthians?
Special guest, Julianna Morlet, joins Tyson to discuss what the bible teaches about women in leadership.
Does everything around you seem to be going into chaos? Does it seem like hope is almost lost? The Resurrection is proof that the worst day can become the most profound and life giving of days!
This is a sermon I had the privilege of sharing with my home church, Shoreline in Austin, Texas.
It has been a wild ride! Seeya next season!
Thank you so much for joining me on this first season.
I pray that God wakes the calling in your soul, sets you apart for his purpose, and encourages you into the balance of spirit and truth worship!
In an age where there is a lot of money flowing in and through the church what is our take on preachers and worship leaders doing this for a living? How much should worship leaders and pastors being paid?
Is there a difference between raising up leaders and training disciples? What does that look like in the context of worship leading? How can you tell if your culture is doing this?
The act of worship is deeply spiritual so how can we claim that it effects the physical reality we are surrounded by?
Does worship have the power to tear down strongholds? Does the Bible teach this?
Are we, as worship leaders, responsible to carry out the great Commission from Matthew 28:18-19?
Are choirs biblical? If so, are they important for the church today?
The worship choir is the means by which the enemies of God hear the joyful expression of God’s people even from afar off. They are our proclamation of victory!
Can rehearsal be an act of spiritual worship?
There’s an amazing passage in the old testament that has really unlocked the value of setting time apart to make sure I am set apart; both in the physical and the spiritual. Part of that is coming ready, filling our vessel so that God can pour out in fullness unhindered by our lack of readiness!
Are tongues for today?
Are they valuable for our worship cultures?
Does there need to be an interpreter present?
Is this the greatest of all these gifts?
Lets talk about tongues!
The Church is the family of families from every tribe, nation and tongue, standing together on the declaration that Jesus is the Christ and the Son of God; tasked with making it on earth as it is in heaven.
This realizes an eternal perspective and purpose for our worship!
We are part of a movement, a body of believers throughout history with a mission to see the earth radically and tangibly change!
An understanding of the mission and purpose of our church can be fuel for the worship leader and the worship experience!
The Holy Spirit is not only the object of our worship but a participant!
The Spirit of God is the essential ingredient in New Covenant worship! He is gathering Jesus’ bride and anointing her for worship!
Having a clear grasp of the Jesus of the Bible is step one in spirit and truth worship.
There are a lot of counterfeit jesus’ out there today, which can direct our worship to self medication or exaltation of self. Let’s unpack some of the key passages in the Bible that inform our understanding of the True Jesus!
Ever heard the term “Liturgy”?
Is it in the Bible?
Is it still valuable today?
In this talk we will discuss how to enter in to the sacred traditions of the historical church and find meaning in joining with all the saints that have gone before us.
God actually rejects worship.
The spirit of Cain.
Not wanting anyone else to succeed around us and intimidating by the success of others.
Amos 5: 21-24
“I hate, I despise and reject your [sacred] feasts,
And I do not take delight in your solemn assemblies.
“Even though you offer Me your burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
And I will not even look at the peace offerings of your fattened animals.
“Take the noise of your songs away from Me [they are an irritation]!
I shall not even listen to the melody of your harps.
“But let justice run down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream [flowing abundantly].
When worship is not bent out in compassion, God rejects it.
Worship is an outward expression of the inward reality of our heart.
“Worship leaders, KNOW YOUR BIBLE, KNOW the heart of God. Our worship should be changing us so radically, that we cannot NOT being the Church in our cities. It HAS to change us.” -TM
Are we wiling to step out first into the raging waters of chaos? SO THAT we might bring heaven to earth. We are postured to be the first to affect change.
“Let’s stop being the Church in the church and start being the Church in the world.” -TM
With what shall I come before the Lord [to honor Him]
And bow myself before God on high?
Shall I come before Him with burnt offerings,
With yearling calves?
Will the Lord be delighted with thousands of rams,
Or with ten thousand rivers of oil?
Shall I present my firstborn for my acts of rebellion,
The fruit of my body for the sin of my soul?
He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you
Except to be just, and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?
Spirit and truth worship calls us to this: DO justice, LOVE kindness, WALK humbly.
Spirit and truth worship call us to bring heaven to earth, by way of compassion. ACTS of compassion.
