1. Skill brings beauty and excellence to our worship.
2. Skill in any art brings breadth and clarity of expression.
3. Skill reflects the cost and value of true worship.
4. Skill brings liberty in worship.
5. Skill brings authority to worship.
6. While skill is called for in our worship, the Bible places certain limitations on what it can produce. (Rev. 14:3 speaks of the song that only those which are redeemed from the earth could learn. Subsequent verses describe a standard of personal righteousness that must be maintained in order to sing this new song).
7. The pursuit of skill engenders Christian character (Skill involves our mind in worship, as called for in Matthew 22:37. The unskilled worship leader is not totally involved with his mind).
