The kind of worshipers the Father Seeks

In John 4:23-24 Jesus tells us: "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and His worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

You know that feeling when the light bulb goes on in your head and you finally realize something; I mean really understand something that seems to have been so simple all along? I had one of those instant moments occur to me this summer.

I was teaching at a worship conference and had that intense pull to get some alone time with God. I poured over Psalm 51 and asked the Holy Spirit to completely wash every bit of "me" out of my body so that my "temple of the Holy Spirit" would be clean. Before I taught others, I wanted be purified from the stench of self-centeredness, pride and personal knowledge. I felt Him wash over my mind, heart, body and make a clean sweep within me. So much peace, joy and His righteousness flooded my soul.

As I then began to go over my teaching notes for one of the classes, it hit me, Bam! The Bible never states that God is looking for dancers. No where! He is looking for humble people who passionately love Him. He is looking for worshipers who will truly worship Him, not put on a show but worship Him with their whole lives. Dance is an expression of our worship. Pretty simple but the stark reality of it really grabbed me.

So often in my life I have had to defend dance ministry and have at times elevated it to be at such a level of importance in ministry that I lost sight of the first priority- the worship of God, focusing instead on ministering with dance. The truth is I shouldn’t dance because that is my gifting. I shouldn’t dance because I have been given the right as a dance minister. I shouldn’t dance because others expect it of me. I must dance because I am hopelessly, passionately, overwhelmingly in love with Jesus. The incredible freedom and joy that is found in Him causes me to rejoice as my eyes are locked in a captivated gaze on the lover of my soul. As for dance, it is one of my means of outward expression for my inward passion. Through this time of communion with God ministry naturally (organically) happens: the bound set free, the sick healed, break through in intercession, prophetic release, spiritual blind eyes see and people experience God’s goodness, freedom, joy and love.

God is looking for worshipers who worship in truth (in reality, being real, who I really am). He wants us to worship Him in the style and as the person He created us to be, no imitations. Let’s endeavor to stay away from conforming to the image or style of a person in ministry we saw or liked and discover the unique and glorious plans and purposes God has for each of us . Keep it real! Make it your worship.    -  Dawn Pruszkowski

 

God created you in His image

God created you in His image. You are a reflection of God, His creativity and ability. He has written His purpose for you on your very heart. As children we could see the purposes much more clearly. We dreamed great and glorious things for our lives and we pretended they were true. Then life happened. Many of us lost our vision, our dreams, our passions, our purpose for life, our joy. God wants you to overcome the obstacles and distractions of life. His desire is for you to grab hold of those dreams and visions again. He wants you to fulfill your purpose. Find that dream; He wrote it on your heart when He created you.     -  Dawn Pruszkowski

 

Here are some books that Dawn recommends

Bob Sorge has many wonderful books that open the eyes about worship, walking through difficult times, and intimacy with the Lord. They are all great! For dance ministry, I specifically recommend:

Dealing With Rejection and Praise of Man - We all will deal with both aspects as we walk in the ministry. How we react and deal with them is very important.

Envy - Oh, yes. We have all been there. "Why does she get to do that...", "I think I could do it better", or "With that dancer being so good, there's no room for me". Everyone in ministry must fight this beast. Get the book and pass it around.
All Sorge books can be purchased at www.oasishouse.net

Waking the Dead - by John Eldridge and
