It seems the times in worship at church when we’ve offered people the chance to get up out of their seats and interact somehow with the prayer time, communion, or other part of the service, we hear much more of how God moved them, blessed them, or impacted them.

It seems that sitting and listening, though important, isn’t as effective in moving our hearts as actually moving our bodies and getting involved.  Maybe it’s because when you’re moving, your choosing to enter more personally and/or deeply into what is happening.  It’s intentional and involves more of you.

Life is that way, too, right?  How much more do we get out of it when we get involved? When we get out of our chairs and be with people, or go somewhere, or try something we haven’t tried before?

What do you think?
