Anointing is Not a Substitute for Preparation
"The anointing is not a substitute for preparation." (2Timothy 2:15)
I had a friend and fellow worship leader interpret the passage in John 4:23-24 as to say that as praise team members worship must be spirit-full and the knowledgeable. What we practice at home reflects what we do in public.
One minister noted that information and inspiration do not need to be in competition with each other. To be negligent in preparation, while expecting the anointing to bail you out at the last minute, is presumptuous and arrogant. It will be evidenced by shallow worship and results that are less than optimal. On the other hand, we shouldn’t be so confident in what we have prepared that we are not trusting in the Holy Spirit or yielding to His influence when we do minister.
