Forms of Worship Using the Body – Running

(Running is not necessarily a form of worship that is used in a “typical” worship service. I have included this form, however, as there are so many references to “running” in the Bible. I have also seen this expression used with great effectiveness in various worship services. On this basis we could go on to study “walking,” etc.)

• Run in Battle/warfare—Run with a troop (NAS) Psalm 18:29

• Run in obedience and rejoicing—I run in the path of your commands because you have set my heart free Psalm 119:32

• Run in the strength of the Lord—When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Proverbs 4:12

But those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

He will lift up a banner to the nations from afar, And will whistle to them from the end of the earth; Surely they shall come with speed, swiftly. Is. 5:26

• Run with a vision or a message—the LORD replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.” Hab 2:2

…the angel who was speaking to me left, and another angel came to meet him and said to him: “Run, tell that young man, ‘Jerusalem will be a city without walls because of the great number of men and livestock in it. Zech. 2:3-4

• Run with a goal and with integrity—…in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 1 Cor 9:24

• Run with endurance—Running the race with endurance. Heb 12:1

• Run to worship Him— Mark 5:6, Mark 9:15, Mark 10:17
