There was a song popular a couple of years back and had the lines
And I would go to the ends of the earth. To the ends of the Earth
For you alone are the Son of God…
I think on the lyrics and I wonder.
Are we just singing a nice ditty that jerks at the heart strings, or do we mean it. Do I mean it when I sing it. There was a fella I met a while back that said he won’t sing that line, because he knows he’d be lying. At least he was honest. Would we really go. Would I go? That same fella said that I was qualified to sing it because I came to Alice and that to him is the ends of the Earth. Haha. Sometimes I’d agree with him.
But it makes me think. Would we do half the things we do if we couldn’t get the satisfaction of getting those likes on Facebook or ❤ on Instagram? Would we go and do what Jesus said even if there was no-one at the end of the day who knew what we did besides Him?
Could we find ourselves so completely in love with Jesus that we could not only say ‘Yes’ but follow that up with action? I am hoping. Over the next year I am hoping to instil in our young people (and whoever will listen for that matter) that it is what is done for Him that counts. It is for Him that we labour, that we share, that we sing, that we get out of our comfort zones. What if, for just one year, we went for broke. We didn’t hold back. Think of what He could do through us. Think if we truly meant the words to that song! What a change this world would see.
What do you think? Are you up for it? I’m wondering if I am. I am going to fall deeper into love with Jesus and I look forward to seeing where it takes me. Would love to hear where it takes you!
