This Pastor is very appreciative, and I know you are as well, for the wonderful devotion of the fabulous, the fantastic, the Friendship Flame Dancers. The Lord is doing an awesome work through these delightful young ladies. They are a blessing on so many levels.
First of all, I see in them the embodiment of Ecclesiastes 12:1: “Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.” The essence being the recognition that we are not our own, but that we are His property now. That being said, we want to give Him a full measure of our time and our talents.
Secondly, these young people have such a commitment to their craft. They rehearse faithfully and enthusiastically with great joy. [Many of us would do well to model their commitment to the task.]
Lastly, they are a joy to behold. They are very proficient in their craft, well trained in the dance, yet they have an unbridled passion in their performance. Somewhat like King David that is recorded in 2 Samuel 6:14: “And David danced before the Lord with all his might:” That’s the joy of the Lord!
Oh that we all would have that devotion for the Lord, where our love for Him is demonstrative! A big “God bless you” flame dancers and also to Sister Rebecca Metters and the wonderful parents of these delightful young ladies.
Be blessed as you “praise His name in the dance:”
Pastor J. Amos Jones
