In our ways to worship series we are on C is for Clapping. If you are in a conservative church, you may not hear a lot of clapping. The churches we have attended are typically contemporary and utilize clapping as a form of worship. Why? I thought I would find some scripture that talks about clapping and see if we can tie the 2 together.
Psalm 47:1 Oh clap your hands, all you people! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
During our songs of worship we are shouting to God with the voice of triumph and the words of songs of victory. It goes hand in hand to clap along with our shouts of praise.
There are many denominations that don't agree with clapping in church. I find it to be an extension of my song, a way for my body to express more than just what my words can say. For my body and soul to worship through the song, rather than sit there somberly as my mouth simply repeats the words on the screen. It is a way to delve into the worship event of song, through expression of dance and joy.
Jesus makes me so happy I can't contain it and it is natural for my family and I to clap as we worship.
