Background: In just the past few days, I’ve mentioned that the church is not merely a building, but a group of believers trusting in our Savior.
Despite what some Baptists would have you believe, straight from 2 Samuel 6, we find dancing in the church:
5 And David and all the house of Israel were celebrating before the Lord, with songs and lyres and harps and tambourines and castanets and cymbals….
14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might. And David was wearing a linen ephod. 15 So David and all the house of Israel brought up the ark of the Lord with shouting and with the sound of the horn. 16 As the ark of the Lord came into the city of David, Michal the daughter of Saul looked out of the window and saw King David leaping and dancing before the Lord… -2 Samuel 6:5,14-16
When you are confronted with something that the Lord has blessed you with, or that the Lord has allowed you to do – do you praise and celebrate with the Lord? Or do you go about your day with a frown?
Need some changes in your life? That’s what the Lord wants! He doesn’t want us to sit and mope around. He wants us to have joy and peace in our lives (Romans 15:13, Galatians 5:22, James 1:2, Philippians 4:4, John 16:24).
