TEXT: MARK 6:14-28 (Please refer to your KJV Bible for scripture reference)
KEY VERSE: MARK 6:22
And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.
Dancers always make effort to improve on their performance to show expertise and excellence. We see in this account the inspiration and power of dancing. Herod and the others who watched her were pleased, inspired, fascinated, absorbed and captured by her performance. Her dance aroused their emotions and Herod was moved to utter a promise which he would not have made in his sound mind that led to a great evil action. John the Baptist was beheaded and his head was given to her to reward her dance.
Ungodly dancing is not practiced only in social parties but presently in the church. Her dance is not for God and His worship; for she knows not the Lord. Her dance in the church is in the same spirit with her dance in the worldly parties and achieves more or less result as of old. We must forbid her! The church is not a place for dancing, but for the worship of the Holy God.
The dancing church today opens the door to the sons and daughters of Herodias:
(1) To come and display their dancing expertise.
(2) To inspire and arouse the ministers and worshipers to all ungodliness by their dancing.
(3) To corrupt or weaken the mental and spiritual judgment of ministers.
(4) To murder the saints in the church by spiritual defilement occasioned by their dance.
(5) To rob God of His Glory in the church.
(6) To rob the church of the glory of the Lord.
(7) To send church members to hell!
Worship God in the beauty of holiness. Do not open your church to dancing spree, otherwise the sons and daughters of Herodias will come in and do destruction to it. The present wild dance and music going on in the churches of Christ in the name of praise worship to God have no scriptural base. The New Testament believers and apostles of the early church neither exemplified this nor taught it. The reasons why this wild dance in the church was not practiced in Bible times, and should be stopped today, are obvious.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Wild dance in the church is an abomination, stop it!
SONG FOR THE DAY: I will sing unto the Lord a joyful song; I will praise His name…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Exodus 7-8; Matthew 17
