Praise Dance of Redemption

In Jesus’s parable of the lost son. As the father saw his Son returning home he called a celebration. At that celebration the father commissioned music and dance. The dance is a biblical response to redemption, love and reconciliation.

Luke 15:20-25 20

20. And he arose, and came to his father. But when he was yet a great way off, his father saw him, and had compassion, and ran, and fell on his neck, and kissed him.

21. And the son said unto him, Father, I have sinned against heaven, and in thy sight, and am no more worthy to be called thy son.

22. But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

23. And bring hither the fatted calf, and kill it; and let us eat, and be merry:

24 .For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry.

25 . Now his elder son was in the field: and as he came and drew nigh to the house, he heard music and dancing.

Let us dance the dance of redemption

Let The Children Praise Dance

Let The Children Praise Dance

A few years ago, my husband was very ill. While I was tending to him, and trying to keep the house quite and calm. I allowed my children  to veg in front of the tube. Then in my Bible study I read the scripture Psalm 8:2.

This scripture challenged me to get the children together to have a praise session in the house even while my husband was sick and to rejoice ahead of time for victory for his healing. So I said, turn off the TV children, let’s get the tambourines and flags and turn on the music.  My daughter and I put on our praise dance garments, and we just danced and worshiped before the Lord around the house. As we rejoiced we saw an immediate response in my husband’s condition, for the better.
We must allow our children to participate in worship, at home and in Church. We must not stop them or send them away for their praise is vital to our victory and even their victory. The scripture is very clear, God ordained, he committed, he wants even they who don’t even eat solid (sucklings) food yet, to worship and praise “From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise because of your enemies to silence the foe and the avenger.”
Psalm 8:2
