No Longer Slaves by BethEl Music

Today's dance, called No Longer Slaves by BethEl Music, is a wonderfully worshipful and contemplative dance that starts softly and builds momentum toward the end.  You'll find it has a few new moves from the previous two dances I posted, and each pattern repeats several times before moving on to another part of the dance in this longer than most, approximately six minute long, song. The repetition will also help you get in the "worship zone," and contemplate the fact that we are no longer slaves to this world, but slaves to Christ.

In Romans 6:6 Paul states, "Knowing this, that our 'old self' (i.e. our slave to sin self) was crucified with Him [Christ], in order that our body of sin might be done away with, so that we would no longer be slaves to sin." And you [and I] "are no longer [considered] a slave, but a son; and if a son, then an heir through God, (Gal 4:7).

Yeshua (Jesus) said, "Truly, truly I say to you, everyone who commits sins [i.e. habitually and unrepentantly in this context] is the slave of sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son does remain forever. So if The Son makes you free [i.e. free from sin] you will be free [i.e. free from sin] indeed," (John 8:34-36).

As you prepare your heart to worship the King in this dance, contemplate the fact that it is only through our being in Christ that the authority sin had over our lives was broken.

"But thanks be to God that though you were slaves of sin, you became obedient from the heart . . . and having been freed from sin, you  became slaves of righteousness . . . For just as you presented your members as slaves to impurity and to lawlessness, resulting in further lawlessness, so now PRESENT [imperative-command here by Paul] your members as slaves to righteousness, resulting in sanctification. For when you were slaves to sin, you were free in regard to righteousness," (Rom 6:17-20). In other words, before coming to Christ you had no obligation to deny your sinful flesh's lusts and desires (in fact they controlled you); but now, having been freed from sin's authority in your life and having been made alive to God, believers are now obligated to do righteousness and justice as slaves of righteousness (Gen 18:19; Prov 21:3; Jer 23:5).

Therefore, today, rejoice in your freedom from sin's grip and seek to present "all your members" (or every part of your body) to serve and glorify the King as you enter the dance and worship to this song called "No Longer Slaves."
