Love in action

Where love becomes more than just a nice word.

Making a difference … just like we are, with what we have, where we can.

In short … making this world a (much) better place.

We as children of God are here to shine the light of Jesus, bringing hope to hopeless places, to heal with what we say and do.

We’re not called to be passive spectators, looking at all that’s wrong and saying o dear the world is perishing. 😉

With our Father-God showing us the way, His Holy Spirit being alive and active in us we can make a difference, yes here and now.

Will you ask, Lord where and how can I allow You to bring hope in and through me.  Will you obey.

That’s all I’m asking you to do with this little question.

Let’s care about the brokenness in this world, supporting, helping people to once again smile because they see there is still good, someone does care.  Jesus in us.

I leave you with the lyrics of this powerful song:

“Do Something”

I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now
Thought, how’d we ever get so far down
How’s it ever gonna turn around
So I turned my eyes to Heaven
I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”
Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of
People living in poverty
Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”
He said, “I did, I created you”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

I’m so tired of talking
About how we are God’s hands and feet
But it’s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It’s alright, “somebody else will do something”
Well, I don’t know about you
But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don’t want a flame, I want a fire
I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
“I’m gonna do something”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

We are the salt of the earth
We are a city on a hill (shine shine, shine shine)
But we’re never gonna change the world
By standing still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something [x3]

(Matthew West)

So many beautiful things our Heavenly Father wants to do in and through us.  Will we say yes?  I do.

Light we can be because Light itself lives inside of us.

Amen.
