Today I heard this song and I was inspired to post it, (along with my favorite quote right now..... )It made me wonder if I would really be willing to go to all extremes to follow my Lord, we say that we are Christians and that we would do anything for God but sometimes I wonder... if it actually came down to leaving "our life" (as we know it)would we really follow through with what we say we would? Would I be willing to leave all comfort behind just to tell others about God & perhaps risk my life? So often I think; someone else can do it. but really, that command wasn't just given to a few people, it was given to all who bear the name of Christ!
The weary and the weak,
And it would be a tragedy for me to turn away.
All my needs, you have supplied.
When I was dead, you gave me life.
How could I not give it away so freely?
And I'll follow you into the homes of the broken,
Follow you into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy, God.
Follow you into the World.
Use my hands, use my feet,
To make your kingdom come,
To the corners of the earth,
Until your work is done.
Cause Faith without works is dead,
And on the cross your blood was shed.
So how could I not give it away so freely?
He walks the streets where we refuse to go,
passes among the last ones we have forgotten,
weeps at the pain and the shame of the city, and wonders...
Where is the Church for which He died? ~Unknown
