I believe that an apprehension and understanding of the grace of God will transform the way we approach Him in worship. In this context, I want to pose the question: who is qualified to serve on the worship team?
He also examines what the old and new testaments suggest about it:
Some people argue that the worship ministry, following the Old Testament model, requires a particular level of holiness. They point to the fact that the presence of God is so holy that the High Priest who has even a trace of sin will be struck dead in the Holy of Holies… The way I see it, the new covenant of grace changes the system.
My take is that worship team members can and should be held to a higher standard, just like any other ministry leaders. I’ve had to release people from the team for moral failings and public sin in the past. I expect it will happen again.
