Hey guys! Welcome back to another episode of Her Faith Inspires podcast where we take cultural issues and align them to biblical truth. Before we get into today’s episode, I want to tell you about a few new tee shirts I have in the online store. I have decided that all of the my inspirational tees will hopefully inspire others back to God’s word.
If you are interested in defending the faith and value the inerrancy of God’s word, my apologia and sola scripture tee shirts will be right up your ally. I also have a cool “Be salty, stay lit” shirt because that’s what we’re called to be in a crazy world.
Check those out at shandafulbright.com/shop. And if you want to join my apologetics class in March for 6 weeks of learning how to defend the faith, sign up at shandafulbright.com/links. Everything is online for your convenience.

So today, I have a dear friend of mine back on the podcast. She was here about a year ago and we have known each other for about 25 years or so. We’ve went to church together, done ministry together and went through ministerial development together so we like to hang out.
Meghan Ramiro is happily married to her husband, Immanuel and together they have 2 beautiful boys who keep them busy. Meghan is a licensed minister with the COG and she is a wonderful worship leader and has led worship at our youth summer camps and women’s conferences here in California. She is a Jesus lover and truth speaker and I know you’re going to enjoy all she has to share with you today.
Meg, welcome back to the show!
We are talking about a very important topic today and that is worship. Honestly, I can’t recall the last time I’ve heard a message preached about worship and I listen to a lot of podcasts and can’t remember the last time I’ve heard one about worship, so I’m glad we’re doing this.
Here in Ca, most of our churches are shut down or are doing things differently. The purpose of this episode today is to help others be able to worship wherever they are, whenever they want. So, as we begin, let’s talk about what worship is and what it’s not. Can you start with what worship is and what it means to worship God?
We have a lot of great contemporary Christian music but I do see a clash of the generations when it comes to music preference. There is some things about Hillsong, Bethel Music, Jesus Culture and others that bother me in the sense of their music is called worship but many times it has to do with the creature rather than the Creator. Can you explain what we need to look for in worship music and why? (Can you give some songs that show we sing for ourselves in our problems rather to God? One that comes to mind is “I Will Rescue You” by Lauren Daigle).
Should we be careful of the songs we call worship songs? How can we know the difference?
You and I used to discuss how to get our youth worship often. One of the things I said many times is “you can’t worship what you don’t know.” Jesus said this to the Samaritan woman in John 4. How does knowing God create a deeper worship experience and what is the responsibility of the worship leader in our churches and what should that look like?
I’ve seen a lot of pastors knock people for wanting to gather. The truth of the matter is that people have a hard time cultivating an atmosphere of worship outside of the church. I get both sides. I understand that we should worship no matter where we are, but I know the struggle of being in a place where worship is expected and people help you get into the right mindset and focus. Since many of us are watching church from our phones or TV, how can we create a more intimate worship experience in our homes?
If you can lay out some practical tips for how to have a more meaningful worship experience both in the church and in our homes, what would they be?
