John 4 may be one of the most well known passages in the Bible about worship. But what exactly is "worship in Spirit and Truth"? And as worship leaders and pastors, how do we plan our services to facilitate the kind of worship that the Father is seeking? The venerable Bob Kauflin joins us on the podcast today to answer these very vital questions! I promise you'll be fascinated by his insights!

We don’t understand the difference between songs that feel good, and songs that are actually good for us - Bob Kauflin - Tweet That!

A song that causes you to focus on the creativity rather than the Word of God is not a helpful song for the Church. - Tweet That!
