We limit ourselves when we stay hidden inside the four walls of our own churches and residences. In the ministry of dance, we can grow beyond our limited experiences when we fellowship with others who desire to serve the Lord. We do not reach out to other ministries for recruitment purposes, but for Kingdom unity and support. Our trust remains in the Lord, and not in others. Though we receive advice and engage in conversation, we learn through our relationships how to discern the voice of the Lord.
There are certain customs and traditions that may be unique to our communities. When we travel and extend our understanding of dance ministry, we will experience many ways to glorify the Lord through dance, praise, and worship. This is not to replicate what we see, but to realize that there are no limits concerning God.
When we have God-ordained relationships in life and ministry, we will remain accountable concerning our own ministries and place in the Body. Healthy relationships birth creativity and community. I praise the Lord for my many friends in ministry all over the world. Knowing them has helped me to stand in awe of the wonderful diversity of God. Being able to travel has inspired me as I obeserve the creation of God from the sky and the highways. How wonderous are His works!
Proverbs 12:26 (NKJV)
The righteous should choose his friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray.
Ecclesiastes 4:9 (NKJV)
[The Value of a Friend] Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor.
Luke 10:1 (NKJV)
After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go.
Ephesians 4:16 (NKJV)
From whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
