"I am a worship leader,” he states. “That is what I do. I’ve been on staff at churches and I’ve been a pastor, but mainly I’ve operated as a worship leader. I’ll be honest…it worried me when worship music began to run to the top of the Christian music charts. It seemed that worship started to become a part of the industry with the center of attention on the artist. But worship has nothing to do with a person. Worship is anything that brings pleasure to the heart of God, and if we really want to please the heart of God, it probably has very little to do with the songs that we sing. Worship is more about ministering to the lost, the least, the downtrodden, the broken, the marginalized people of society; the hungry, the thirsty, the naked, the imprisoned, the sick. It was a revelation to me that I could be close to the heart of God if I ministered to the poor. The song, ‘Among the Poor,’ flows out of that revelation.”" -Jeremy Riddle (source: http://www.vineyardmusic.com/vm/content/jeremy-riddle )
Beyond the way we treat the poor and our own body, the heart of God can be found in our worship of Jesus. John 12:8 Jesus said that we have the poor with us always to do good for, and to feed. But, when we worship Him, and praise Him, when we speak to Him in prayer, that's the way to His heart. But, we'll never get that far if we don't take concern for our own body and the poor and weak among us. So, when we find Jesus, are we ready to lavish our praise on Him?
