Some Things that You Can Do In Church Without Making God Mad

I thought I would put together a list of biblical things that you can do in church - maybe even should do.

Stand When You Sing: 2 Chronicles 20:19 Then the Levities of the children of the Hohathites and of the children of the Korahites stood up to praise the LORD God of Israel with voices loud and high.

Clap Your Hands: Psalms 47:11a Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples!

Shout:
Psalms 47:11b Shout to God with the voice of triumph!

Raise Your Hands:
1 Timothy 2:88 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands.

Bow Your Head:
2 Chronicles 7:3 When all the children of Israel saw how the fire came down, and the glory of the Lord on the temple, they bowed their faces to the ground on the pavement, and worshiped and praised the Lord.

Use Drums and Electric Guitars for Worship!
2 Samuel 6:55 Then David and all the house of Israel played music before the Lord on all kinds of instruments of fir wood, on harps, on stringed instruments, on tambourines, on sistrum's, and on cymbals.

Everyone Pray at Once:
Acts 4:24 So when they heard that, they raised their voice to God with one accord.

Dance:

Psalm 149:3 Let them praise His name in chorus and choir and with the [single or group] dance; let them sing praises to Him with the tambourine and lyre!


Speak in Tongues:
Acts 2:44 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.


Holy Kiss:
1 Thessalonians 5:26 Greet all God’s people with a holy kiss.

I would believe that all these things make our God to
rejoice. :-) The Holy Kiss might take a little adjusting to... haha Hope you're teaching is going great! Happiest of new years to you~

I love to stand during the music at church, and to clap. things are different now that I'm playing drums. It is more fun and people don't give me weird looks anymore. But if you think about it shouldn't I get more? I mean before I stood and put my hands together repeatedly. Now I kick, hit sticks on drums, make noise, and hit round pieces of metal. Shouldn't that warrant more looks? But it doesn't. :)

@2S - interesting in many countries the Holy Kiss is part of the culture.

@Jay - LOL I watch the musicians a lot of times - so when I come to your church, I am going to multi-task and clap while look at you. ;)

Thanks for reading along.
