There is this old song the church mothers use to sing, “Whatever you do for the Lord, let it be real!” Gospel singer and BET Sunday Best judge, Jonathan McReynolds is basically telling us it’s time to do a heart check during this pandemic, to make sure what we’ve been doing for the Lord was real.
With most churches resulting to online Sunday Service and Bible Class, due to COVID-19 , McReynolds ask the question… Are church leaders still putting that same energy into preparing their Sunday lesson or songs of worship as they did before this pandemic changed the way we did church.
In a lot of different ways, the Church is being shaken up, he shared with the Christian Post. Are you still a word carrier and a researcher when you’re not preaching in front of people? Do you still have the same enthusiasm when you don’t know if they approve or not? Are you a worshiper or just a worship leader, you make other people worship? What are you? So I just think it’s an amazing time that we have to check ourselves for real, there’s nothing to distract us, nothing to clap and pat us on the back. We have to really see what the foundation of our hearts and the things that we do, where they lie.
