I want to get to a point where I recklessly worship Jesus Christ.
Mark 10:15 says, “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
I see people dancing during worship like little children, jumping all over the place. My initial instinct is to judge them as weird. That is a sinful, prideful instinct to have, because I realize that they are becoming like children. Letting loose and becoming immune to the distractions around them. I truly long for that. I want to be so comfortable with my love for Jesus that I don’t care what others may think of my unfiltered, unrestrained praise.
In 2 Samuel 6 David danced out of joy and worship for the ark coming into the city and Saul’s daughter, Michal, saw him and despised him. I doubt that stopped David from dancing!
I want to throw off the chains that are keeping me from worshiping with reckless abandonment. Those chains are my own pride, not wanting others to think I’m that weird religious nut flailing around. I want to not care about that.
