Cheering for Jesus!

With the Foot ball season just has kicked off, cheer leaders and rooting fans for each team bring so much passion and power to the game. Have you wondered the Cheer leaders for Jesus?

Well. I just had an opportunity to have a good look at one such Cheer leader this Sunday.

As the Church celebrated Gospel music this week as the theme, though we were immersed into the joyful worship I still cant help but notice the "young lady" with golden pom pom singing and dancing her way thru the service. Her energy at this age tells pages of her walk, her life and faith in Christ.

There are times, when the Choir would sing a song reflecting exactly my thoughts, I have felt shy to even lift my hand and praise the LORD in the sitting crowd. I felt awkward, a bit worried about being judged and my another good reason - I dont want others to think me of as show off . LOL. :)

The LORD has shed that with my walk thru this past wilderness.  If I cant dance and sing for him, then I have nothing to dance and sing about in this world. If don't dance and sing for him, then the rocks will cry out in my place. I am glad that the LORD took away that feeling.

Bible says so much about singing.

Psalm 100:1-2 
A Psalm for giving thanks. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth! Serve the Lord with gladness! Come into his presence with singing!

Colossians 3:16 
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

Psalm 95:1-2
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!

Ephesians 5:19
Addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with your heart,

James 5:13
Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.

Psalm 150:1-6 
Praise the Lord! Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens! Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness! Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp! Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe! Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals! ...

Psalm 147:1
Praise the Lord! For it is good to sing praises to our God; for it is pleasant, and a song of praise is fitting.

Psalm 13:6 
I will sing to the Lord, because he has dealt bountifully with me.

1 Corinthians 14:15
What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.

Bible does not say about Style of singing but it talks about Substance. It does not ask about the singer, but it  asks about singing in spirit. It does not say about the notes of song, says about the greatness of the LORD! It is not about the performance, it is about the Praising Christ Jesus!

You could be  awkward singer, So what. No Grammy can match to that song that comes from your spirit in praise of HIM.

We belong to a Super Powerful Team. Come let us Cheer for our Coach, forerunner, the Awesome Quarter back, Our Prominent Center, Our Running back, Full back, cornerback, our Dependable defensive tackle/end, Our Safety.

With HIM this game is ours! Praise the Mighty name of Jesus Christ!

Psalm 95:1 
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!
