#HOMEchurch Day20. How to Lead Your Household in Worship
You’ve totally got this! You don’t need a seminary degree or a certificate of ordination to lead your household in worship. As a leader in your home, you are authorized by Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20) and commissioned by the Church (1 Peter 2:4-9; Revelation 5:6-10) to provide spiritual leadership for your household!
In fact, the Body of Christ is at its most effective when every Christian home has someone within the home who is providing spiritual leadership, encouragement, and discipleship for the members of their individual household. YOU CAN DO THIS!!
Here is a simple yet significant plan to lead your household in worship at home:
INVOCATION: Pray, “Holy Spirit of God, please meet us here, and lead us in Your wisdom and courage.”
OLD TESTAMENT READING: Ask someone to read aloud Isaiah 50:4-9.
SONG OF WORSHIP: Visit YouTube to look up and play “The King Is Here (Official Lyric Video)” by Corey Voss.
PSALM: Ask someone to read aloud Psalm 118:19-29.
OFFERING: Ask “What is something the Lord would really like for you to give to Him today, which you are truly willing to give?”, and allow time for sharing…
NEW TESTAMENT READING: Ask someone to read aloud Matthew 21:1-11.
DISCUSSION: Ask, “What does this passage tell us about God, God’s character, and God’s values?”, and allow time for discussion…
BENEDICTION: Speak these words over your household, from Numbers 6:24-26 – “May the Lord bless you and keep you; may the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; may the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.”
