Sitting back and waiting for "something" to happen is not the order of the day. The time for being passive in the church while the world is dying is without excuse. The Bible instructs us to be "doers" of the Word and not hearers only. It is time to act on what the Lord has been saying to us for far to long. Let us get up and move!

Inactivity and passivity in the church during praise and worship has often been labeled the "spectator spirit." Many who have been drawn to dance ministry may have once been sitting in the pew, watching the ministry of movement. At some point, many dancers has a life-changing experience that moved them from being a spectator to an expectant participant.

If we remain moldable concerning our expressions of adoration unto our Father, the corporate worship experience will receive the mandate to "do" the Word openly. As dancers, it is an awesome sight when the viewer moves from his or her seat, and is inspired to praise the Lord in the dance. If we study the Scriptures, the truth that we gain will become evident in our movement. As we continue to move in Him, He will continue to transplant the hearts of the people to draw them to Him.

Psalm 40:10 (NKJV)
I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have declared Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great assembly.

Luke 8:47 (NKJV)
Now when the woman saw that she was not hidden, she came trembling; and falling down before Him, she declared to Him in the presence of all the people the reason she had touched Him and how she was healed immediately.

Acts 20:20-21(NKJV)
How I kept back nothing that was helpful, but proclaimed it to you, and taught you publicly and from house to house, testifying to Jews, and also to Greeks, repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ.

James 1:25 (NKJV)
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
