For those who prefer to read, here is the text of the video.
I believe God has created us to worship not only with our minds but also with our bodies. In the last video I pointed out that the Bible is full of examples of physical worship. Today I am going to talk about our bodies.
God did not make us as spirits. You are not an angel. We are told that God's ultimate goal for us, even after we die, is to have glorified bodies.
My point is simply this: we are embodied souls. God made us this way and this means that our bodies are important to who we are. We cannot simply pretend they don't exist.
This is certainly true as we go about our daily lives, but it is also true when we worship. Our worship is not complete if we ignore our bodies.
Our bodies are not evil entities that we need to set aside in order to worship God. Instead, God calls us to worship Him with all we are – heart, soul, mind and strength.
As you worship God I encourage you to allow your body to join in in whatever manner seems most appropriate. Try it now. Take a moment right now to worship God and allow your body to join in.
