There is a reason why dance is so important as part of our whole life worship. God created dance for His glory and pleasure. John 1:3 and Romans 11:36 tell us that everything comes from the Lord. Not only did He create all things, they were created for His pleasure.

Psalm 149:3-4 says “Let them praise His name with dancing; let them sing praises to Him with tambourine and lyre. For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation.” God loves to see us dance!

Our bodies are instruments of service and worship. How we use our bodies has much greater spiritual significance than we may realise. The enemy is working hard to make us believe otherwise. God intended our worship in motion for much more noble use. He finds us acceptable in our whole life worship.

“I appeal to you therefore, brethren, and beg of you in view of the mercies of God, to make a decisive dedication of your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and well pleasing to God, which is your reasonable service and spiritual worship.” Romans 12:1.
