Some people don’t like to come to church and hear people greeting one another. They think they sound like chattering birds in a tree. They say, “Be quiet. We have come to worship.” When you meet your brothers and sisters in Jesus, be cheerful, be happy. There is nothing wrong with that.
You may respond, “But I think we are to be still and know that God is in His holy temple.” There is a time to be still. But the Bible also says, “Shout unto the Lord.”
Ecclesiastes tells us there is a time to cry and a time to laugh. There are times when we are exuberant in our worship. The Bible says, “Clap your hands, all ye people.” and “Lifting holy hands to God in prayer.” There are times when we are to be on our face, on our knees with the Lord, but the point is—we are to be natural.
