Dancing for God

How do you express your faith? Today in church we had two young ladies do it through a liturgical dance. They used their talent to praise God.

We all have gifts. Most of the time we are reluctant to use them in church or to glorify God. They may be gifts that don't seem very spiritual. Maybe you are an athlete and you can't see what hitting a baseball has to do with God. Well look at the professional athletes who lead chapel services for their teams or the guys who play in recreational leagues who are sought out when someone has a problem and they need someone to talk to. It is more about being available than it is having a spiritual gift. Your gift may put you in a place where Gd can use you.

I know a teacher who never says Jesus' name in her classroom but she reveals him every day in the way she loves her students. The truth is that we all have gifts to share and the only question is whether we will do it or not. The where will come later.

Some will have opportunities to do it in worship, in Sunday School and on boards and committees. Others will do it at work or as they live out their life in the world. God honors both ways. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and dance for God.
