LISTEN NOW! WATCH FULL PROGRAM! As an International Worship Leader, Jason Upton has been able to express the Father’s heart during many albums and songs. As Rags to Riches Ministries recently held “The Father’s Signature” in Pensacola, Florida, Jason shares his own journey and what worship is to him. From humble beginnings, Jason was adopted in 1974. His biological mother prayed that he would be a worshiper. Her prayers have come to complete fruition as that is exactly what has transpired in Jason’s life. When he met his wife, she encouraged him to sing the real things that were coming from his heart. It is these very words from his heart that has captured his true audience, the Father’s heart. The ultimate way to the Father’s heart is through Jesus.
Jason shares about worship being an encounter with the Father. On the contrary, ‘entertainment is to detain people from entering. So, what I’m always doing is trying to invite people…..you’re not inviting people to do more, you’re inviting people to put themselves in a place of receiving what the Father is giving in the moment.’ This is such a profound reality for us to have when we are worshipping God, seeking His heart. Often times, when we speak about “worship” we tend to think about the songs that we sing or the music that we listen to. Jason responds to this by stating, “Jesus didn’t say much about singing to him but he said a lot about following him; when we make the activity of following Jesus, that’s the goal of worship.” Jesus wants more than a song; He wants a life of worship. Everything we do in life, we can do it while focusing on the Father’s heart. Hear the full interview with Jason Upton and more about his responses to worship, and so much more. Greg and John shared in this segment.
