Friends in Christ Weekly Message
July 11, 2009
He was dancing for the Lord with all his might, but he wore only a linen cloth. He and everyone else were celebrating by shouting and blowing horns while the chest was being carried along.
Saul's daughter Michal looked out her window and watched the chest being brought into David's City. But when she saw David jumping and dancing for the Lord, she was disgusted.
2 Samuel 6:14-16 (CEV*)
When we are overcome with joy in the Lord, we may look foolish and disgusting to those who don't share in that joy, and look on us with worldly eyes. But let us not quench the joy the Lord gives us.
Do you look upon those who are overcome with the wonder of God's love with worldly eyes or with the eyes of the Spirit? Do you allow your love for the Lord, and you joy in God, to be expressed fully, even when that might seem strange or even disgusting in the eyes of the world?
