2012 Worship Conference List
27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish.
Have you been to a worship service where you stood with your hands raised, ready to worship God, only to hear the worship leader say, “Before we worship God, let’s all search our hearts”? Then, as you search your heart, before long, you dig up something that you don’t like. The next thing you know, your hands are no longer raised and soon, you find yourself sitting down — you don’t feel good worshiping God any more.
My friend, I have good news for you. Come and worship Him as you are. Come into God’s presence Jesus-conscious, forgiveness-conscious and grace-conscious! Come into God’s presence bringing only Jesus the spotless Lamb of God as your offering.
Your worshiping God is like the times God’s people in the Old Testament brought their offerings to the priest. The priest examined the animal sacrifice to ensure that it was without blemish. The priest did not examine the sinner. If the animal was without blemish, God accepted the animal sacrifice as well as the offerer who brought the animal.
So when you come into God’s presence, don’t do any self-examination and be discouraged when you find faults in your life. God does not examine you. He sees you through the full value, and all the loveliness and acceptance of His Son. (Ephesians 1:6) He sees you holy and without blemish!
Remember the woman who was referred to as a sinner, possibly a prostitute? She went to the house of the Pharisee who was hosting Jesus and wiped Jesus’ feet with her hair. (Luke 7:36–50) That was her act of worship.
She came to Him as she was. Yes, she knew that she had sinned, but she worshiped Jesus first because of who He is. She was Jesus-conscious. Then, she heard Jesus say, “Your sins are forgiven.” (Luke 7:48) She received the forgiveness she needed from Him.
Whatever you need from the Savior, come to Him as you are. Worship Him for who He is and then you will hear Him say, “Go your way. Your restoration has come. Your prosperity is here. You are healed. You have been made whole!”

RWTC congratulates Seth Baron, the winner of the Guitar Survival Kit giveaway! Seth lives in Muncie, IN where he is the worship pastor at First Church of the Nazarene. As many of you worship pastors know you have to be a person of all trades at times and Seth is no exception. He sings, plays the guitar and has started to pick up the piano. He’s hoping second time is a charm.
“I love leading people in worship. God stirs my heart when His people sing to Him.” Seth said. “I love being in the middle of that! God has been so gracious to my family and we will forever worship Him!”
As 2012 is underway we will be announcing huge additions to Rockin’ With The Cross. As you may notice on our website our giveaway banner has changed to make ready the announcement of our mobile app platform. Many have asked for a mobile app and the ability to have everything you do, be available on the go. We are about to unveil an amazing music app. It will be a two part process with iPads, iTouch and iPhones getting the app first. At the same time launching our wireless Bluetooth foot pedal system that allows for hands free song switching. The app for Android devices will be released later this year. (the secret is out –we’ve joined forces with an established music app which has a 5 out of 5 rating on iTunes) At this moment we are in the process of adding the RWTC archive to the software and once that is completed we will announce our official launch to everyone. (just a little bit more time and we promise you will be blown away)
Remember that each membership allows us to keep going and equip others like you in ministry here in the U.S. and abroad. We are so excited at what the Lord is allowing us to be involved in and to do in 2012! Please know that you help us directly and indirectly minister to millions. Praying for you all!
Don’t we live in a great time of technology and tools? One of the great new tools we’re embracing on Rockin With The Cross is an app called Spotify. Spotify is a free (with ads) music service (like pandora or last.fm) that gives you access to an enormous archive of music (hey, that’s what we do!). One of the great things about Spotify is you can create and share song lists (I’m sensing some synergy here!)
So we started creating some song lists to share with you!
We have already linked up our Top 25, the newly added songs, and the request list on our website. We’ve also created some extra lists of newly released worship music and the new Christmas albums for 2011.
But since we enjoy giving andreceiving, we want to hear what your favorite Christmas songs are! We have created a list on Spotify that allows you to add your favorite song. You’ll need to do a few simple steps.
- Open Spotify to our “Add Your Favorite Christmas Song” list
- Subscribe to the list, so you can add your song
- Find your favorite Christmas song and drag it to the list
- Now we can all enjoy your song
Here are some links to our Spotify Song Lists:
- Top 25 Songs – now you can listen to the most popular songs on our site
- Newly Added Songs on RWTC – the audio to the new charts added on our site
- Song Requests – Take a few minutes and submit one of the songs others are looking for
