Don't Be A Bystander

Jesus was no bystander. He was also no grandstander.
he was more of a church planter.....
looking for us....

He showed us how to treat others, 
how to love one another, always looking out for our brother.
He didn't care about our education,
or personal feelings of liberation.

He came for all,
and hung out with the lost.
He told us the truth....
We have a short time here.
It's not about our comfort, happiness or freedoms.
It's about the lost...
the ones we should seek at all cost.

We are called to see with a global vision
the call of Christ..
We are to act on the day to day, and seek to help the lost find their way.
A global vision with a personal touch. Reach out to the hurt and see where He leads.
If we do the small things, and sow healthy seeds,
He will be our Provider and reap a great harvest.

We are called to community, to love God and love people.
It's really quite simple, so why
do we struggle?
We put our needs ahead of His call. Why do we search for a perfect world here on earth? 
That is not His plan, but the evil one sneaks in and destroys. He tells us we should have our way, our rights, and so we fight... 
The Christ tells us we have gone astray, none of these things matter if you seek Me first...
trust and obey. 

Invest your life in others. His call is clear. 
He is coming back soon, will we have anything to declare? 
Will our life be a song, lovely and clear... sharing Jesus love simple as he shared?

Simple, but without apology. He is first, we are last. Put aside our needs and wants and recognize the facts. 
The things we fight about here on earth are foolish and take our focus off what He declares us to accomplish.

"He has shown you O man what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8
