What is “Christ Moves Now"?
“Christ Moves Now” is the intentional practice of connecting our entire being - mind, body, and spirit with God: The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. This is experiential program developed to deepen participant’s connection to God and Jesus Christ. Doing “Christ Moves Now” is one way to tap into the Holy Spirit and healing powers within us from God. It is also one way to demonstrate our gratitude for our life by using the blessings God gave us and is a path to being good stewards of the Temple of the Holy Spirit - our minds and bodies.
“Christ Moves Now” involves praise, worship, meditation, healing, and fellowship in motion because Jesus Christ is moving now and is always moving in us and through us.
The question is:
Are you moving your Temple of the Holy Spirit daily to show God that you are grateful and willing to do your part?
Do you promote and claim the healing that you are asking God to deliver?
God already blessed you with healing powers and He may be asking you why you are praying for a blessing that he already answered?
“Christ Moves Now" uses evidence-based therapeutic movements and techniques to improve health and wellness starting from where each person is. We recommend that every participant consult with their healthcare provider before participating in Christ Moves Now. The movements and techniques are approved and used by leading medical professionals and fitness experts in the US and internationally. But most importantly, “Christ Moves Now” is primarily spiritually-based on and inspired by God and Jesus Christ, but welcomes and all people – without judgement.
“Christ Moves Now” uses traditional and contemporary Christian gospel music during some sessions, but quiet movement praise and motionless private devotion and meditations are also facilitated and encouraged.
Praise the Lord at all times with your entire heart, mind, body, and soul because “Christ Moves Now” and forever more. Amen.
How does “Christ Moves Now” glorify God and Jesus Christ?
As with all questions of Christian spiritual alignment, the individual’s relationship with God, Jesus, and The Holy Spirit is what determines whether a specific action or practice is in alignment with God, Jesus Christ, and scriptures.
Yoga and many other forms of holistic health systems each emphasize different approaches to yogic wellness. Yoga, means “unity” or “to join" in ancient Sanskrit. Yoga is focused on using routines and discipline to move us toward unity of mind, body, & spirit. For Christians movement to unity using yoga would be focused on unifying with God and others in Jesus' name (John 17:20-24) and unified in the body of Christ because God's love "binds them all together in perfect unity" (Colossians 3:14).
Regardless of the particular type of yoga, people who desire to practice yoga must focus on making their practice Christ-centered or Christ Moves Now by doing the following essential things:
1. Pray constantly and "continually" (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
Stay in God's presence no matter what we are doing - yoga, working, playing, planning, vacationing, listening, talking, or serving - it is wise for Christians to stay in God's presence at all times - even when doing exercise. God's presence in Jesus' name is what makes Christ Moves Now a practice that demonstrates our faith and commitment as Christians – we are using our talents to serve God and enhance our ability to serve God.
2. Confess, Repent, and Forgive (Psalm 32)
Daily or hourly confession keeps us close to our Lord and Savior and allows us to rest in His forgiveness as we do Christ Moves Now or anything in His name - to serve Him, worship Him, be thankful for Him, and love others because of His love for us (Isaiah 30:15 & 43:25).
3. Cultivate Contentment and Be Content (Philippians 4:11-13)
When we practice Christ Moves Now or do anything in life we are in alignment and harmony with God when we rest in the moment and remain fully present in the moment and call on God to sustain us at all times and in all things. A powerful affirmation of contentment and God’s power is: “I can do everything through Him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13).
4. Finally, and possibly most importantly, Do Everything with Love.
Do everything with love - yoga, parenting, work, shopping, running, walking & just being - all done with God's love mindfully at the center.
Scriptures warn and teach us as Christians that “the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also (James 2:26).
Would faith alone allow us to achieve and sustain a healthy mind, body, and spirit?
Would our minds be healthy if we looked at too many hours of CNN or Fox News?
What about using faith alone to improve our physical and medical wellbeing? Could we merely “faith” our way to cardiovascular health?
Instead of yoga or gentle exercise, why can’t we pray, meditate, and “faith” our way to a healthy body, strong heart, good circulation, and proper digestion?
I believe we all know the answers to these questions, but the question is – what works are we choosing to employ to demonstrate our faith in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? Christ Moves Now offers one possible holistic option for taking excellent care of the wonderful mind, body, and spirit that God gave us because of His love, grace and mercy. Amen.
