Dancing, dressing, and language-worship.

Is there a proper way of dancing and dressing that is expected of someone in a church? 

Dancing, dressing, and language through worship.

Christianity is a religion based on the personality and teachings of Jesus Christ or its beliefs and practices. However, Christian worship services generally include singing, dancing, prayer, and a sermon.

‘Worship is something we do. It involves sacrifice, but at the heart of the gospel is the Truth. We are called and chosen by God to join in with the dance of the trinity’ (Hughes) It is allowed to leave the shackles behind and dance in the freedom of Christ.

What is worship dance?

Worship dance is any kind of dance that is undertaken for a specific purpose of religious worship. As an essential element of human expression. Dance is found within many of the world’s religions and is frequently associated with worship.

 If singing is a God-given talent that people use in church to offer their talent to God. It’s also possible for them to show their aptitude for honoring through dancing.

Dance in worship – what does the Bible say?

In Exodus 15:20: “Miriam the prophetess, Aaron’s sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing.”

2 Samuel 6:14-22 

14 And David danced before the Lord with all his might, wearing a priestly garment. 15 So David and all the people of Israel brought up the Ark of the Lord with shouts of joy and the blowing of rams’ horns.

If David could dance with his almighty what can hinder an ordinary soul from praising through dancing?

 Is Dressing An Issue?

Some acknowledge that what we wear at church should be different from what we wear for other occasions. Well, I don’t know anyone who would chide a novice or an indigent person for not wearing a suit or a fancy long dress.

A long time ago, there was controversy after Fungisai Zvakavapano-Mashavave, flattered on the quarrel over her dressing which some people deemed inappropriate for a Christian personality.

I believe that what you wear in a church is a non-issue. Come on, just nail something on. Worship and serve God. As long as your heart is enlightened, what you wear doesn’t matter. Wearing a chemise doesn’t mean you are faithful to the Lord.

Most importantly, keep your eyes on the price. Knowing your intention is the most essential thing to consider in church.

Sometimes it’s a misty to understand the relationship between worshiping and dressing. When it is only you and God, how you dress does not matter much. Because even when you are taking a shower, sleeping naked, God is right there with you dwelling in you.

What about Language?

Is there a proper language that is expected of a leader to speak? One of the Zimbabwean Prophets from the Alabaster International ministries caused havoc on social media through his teaching when he said “all the young girls who want to make their life with pussy, your pussy will perish with you in hell,” he said.

Can we consider it as flippant? or it’s just a way to make them conjecture his word. Dancing, dressing, and language through worship are the most important factors in a certain religion.
