Natural vs Mechanical
Have you ever seen someone who is “rhythmically challenged” try to dance? It’s usually awkward or downright comical. Some of my guitar students try to imitate & manufacture rhythm mechanically, but some have natural rhythm that just flows out of them. When a worship leader is mechanical, or tries to imitate someone, or follow a formula, it doesn’t work. But when they step aside & allow the Spirit of God to flow out of them, it’s a beautiful thing.
