There is a difference between praise and worship.
Praise is usually a fast-tempo style of music. It is our elevation of joy that is offered up to our Father, God. When we sing a praise song, we are displaying our happiness that we serve such a mighty, merciful, and awesome God.
Worship is an unselfish act of adoration. We get gratitude from swooning our Father, just as two people who are in love would experience, and when we sing worship songs—it’s all about Him.
When we attended dances long ago, what type of tempo music was used before everyone was asked to go home (“Last call for alcohol.” Don’t play like you don’t remember). The most common song was “Good Night Sweetheart”? It was a slow song.
We shouldn’t jerk God around either. Slow then fast, or fast then slow, and then fast again. A praise and worship leader has to lead the people into the presence of Almighty God. Worship is adoration. It’s a time of reverence and devotion. It’s an ooey-gooey time of love for God. God is ushered into our presence and when it’s time for the Word (sermon, homily, message, lesson or preaching), then His Word will come forth without hindrances.
