“I think that, in some ways, big cool church — which I am a fan of — has, in some ways, done us a disservice. And this is churches all over the world,”

Christian Award Winning artist Tauren Wells says churches have forgotten that worship isn’t something that should be relegated to leaders on stage. But rather, worship is what’s happening among the faithful in the pews who’ve come to praise God.

During a recent Young Adult Worship Night at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston, Texas — where he has been a staff member since last year — Wells talked about the power of worship.

In a video clip of last week’s message posted to Instagram Wells says “I think that, in some ways, big cool church — which I am a fan of — has, in some ways, done us a disservice. And this is churches all over the world,”

“We have, with good intentions, relegated the idea of worship to something that happens on a stage [where] worship leaders worship, [and] we all enjoy the overflow. But the truth is, the power of worship is not on this stage, it’s in these seats,” he emphasized.

Wells added that worshipers of Christ shouldn’t restrict worship only to what happens on a stage “with bands and instruments.” And encouraged those gathered not to “shrink the magnitude” of what worshiping God really is.

“Worship is the human soul responding to its Creator in a desperate response to be adequate to the measure of love that has been poured out from the Heavens into the Earth, into my little small life,” he asserted.

“Worship is not hype,” Wells further added. “Don’t give me hype if you can’t give me depth. Because it’s in the deep places that God transforms us and shapes our character into His very own. He uses this mold called worship to fashion us into His image.”

I thought that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was really hoping if anybody at all could recommend a trusted website where I can get Vape Shop B2B Database with Emails I am presently reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not sure which one would be the most suitable option and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
