Back in the 1970’s, a new movement was born in the inner cities across America. While theories exist as to whom, where and how this form of expression began, one thing is known. Rap music was the inspiration behind break dancing. Although this style has faded in popularity, don’t be surprised if you see intricate footwork, spinning headstands, tumbling and elaborate improvised movements.
Over the weekend, I was listening to music for several hours, trying to find something to fall asleep to. Before I collapsed into a peaceful state of bliss, the lyrics to one song struck me, Love Break Me by Ocean’s Above. This song may not lead you to dance, but it will urge curious souls to contemplate a spiritual transformation. When the love of Jesus enters a human heart, a spiritual break dance commences.
Ravi Zacharias grew up in India. After unsuccessfully attempting suicide, a Christin hospital worker reached out to him and gave his mother a Bible to read to Ravi out loud before being released. These words touched his heart, Romans 10:19, leading to a life of service to God. Now a successful author, motivational speaker and ministry founder, Ravi is performing a spiritual break dance on his way to heaven. Don’t sit on the sideline. Rather, get up, go to the dance floor and a bust a new move today!
