Laetisia Sembiring performs a lovely and anointed cover of Matt Redman’s ‘The Heart of Worship.’ The song was written during a difficult time in Redman’s and his church’s lives.Redman’s home church in Watford was having a spiritual crisis, while the worship band’s musical creativity was at an all-time high, having a significant impact on worship around the world. Redman, on the other hand, felt that “there was a dynamic missing.”
In response, Soul Survivor and Momentum co-founder Pastor Mike Pilavachi bravely asked the congregation if they were bringing anything to God in worship or if they were simply consumers soaking it all in. He implied that the band and church had lost their way in worship and that all distractions, including the sound system and the worship band, had to be removed.
This approach eventually led to an awkward silence, according to Redman, but the congregation found their voices and offered heartfelt prayers, worshiping God in a fresh and new way. When they reintroduced the music and singers, the church had discovered a new perspective on worship, one that was entirely focused on Jesus and came straight from the heart. When the music fades, everything is stripped away, and I simply come Longing to bring something valuable that will bless your heart.
I’m returning to the heart of worship, and it’s all about You, Lord. Jesus Matt Redman had no idea when he wrote the song that it would become a nationally and internationally acclaimed worship anthem. Today, Laetisia Sembiring stirs our hearts with an anointed cover of this powerful song, reminding us once again that our worship must be focused solely on Jesus.
