So, What You Sayin?

The message must be clear. We cannot just slap the name of Jesus on something and call it "Christian." All that we do should be to the glory of God. When you choose songs to dance to or select choreography, be careful of the motivation behind it. A right relationship with God and a prayer life will help you see your real self and make corrections where needed.

Some people select songs based on emotions. Others select movements that will allow them to showcase skills in ballet, modern, mime, or hip- hop. I have been blessed to see some contemporary movement ministers who no doubt are inspired by the Spirit. I am not picking on the hip-hop persuasion. Everyone who says "Lord, Lord," does not automatically equal a believer in Christ.

In the video below, please take a look and ask honestly who is being glorified here. If the arts are to be restored to the proper place in the church and in the world, then we must definitely demonstrate the Power and Glory of the Lord.

This video was labeled under the "Praise Dance" category... I'm just sayin'...
