This is the 1st time I have heard this song. I really love it. God created us to take care of His world and each other----how far we have fallen. We each need each other to complete what God has created. The Holy Spirit gives each believer certain gifts and those gifts when used fit into a beautiful picture that God intended it to be. But, we live in a fallen world and nothing will be as it should be until Christ returns. We as Christ followers need to truly pray for the lost.
So true but so sad this happened to the chruch i got saved in after the pastor died nobody could agree on who should be the next pastor instead of praying they joined together and voted a man God put there out and put who they wanted in and the chruch barely has anyone anymore
Until those who take offence stop to listen to God's words and allow them to penetrate, they will see everything as a hate message. God wants that no one should perish. This includes everyone. Sometimes there are those that have come away from the same things in life and have made it to asking Jesus to save them. We have to remember that was us once.
"Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
"Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!" cries she
With silent lips. "Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
-The New Colossus (poem), Emma Lazarus, engraved on a bronze plaque and mounted inside the Statue of Liberty's pedestal's lower level.
It would seem that this "ME First" trait is hardwired in people. You see it from employment to people driving their cars. It is a scrambling to the reserves or supplies that is provided in the environment around a person verses the group. On the reverse side, what person would logically say to themselves I am hungry, but I will let them go to the food/resource pile first. In hopes of what? Altruism? Look at any politician, animal, or person in any career, they will pry, shove, cut in front of, or arm-bar to get to the supplies first. SAD but true. Problem is we live on a planet that is so immensely rare that we cannot even gather 1 speck of evidence other life exists throughout such a great distance as the galaxy, much less the universe. And if greed/selfishness is the order of ones existence-its inevitable we all die. I hope and believe GOD/Jesus will show us a path that we can save ourselves
Just remember that you are not alone in sin. The Bible said for ALL have fallen short of the glory of God. So you are not alone and no one sin is bigger than the other. In order to become a Christian you by no means have to be perfect. The Holy Spirit is capable of healing any hurt and solving any problem all you have to do is ask and believe. Jesus was tortured & mangled for us sinners! I am sorry your friends judge you so and I will be praying for clarity and truth. Love a friend.
im not going to argue with u. thannk u so much for being intelligent enough to not have a huge argument and insult ppl without reason like so many others. I know u may not believe it works but ill be praying for you to find Jesus and to accept Him. thank u again for being gracious and mature
I absolutely love this song - and this video. It was the first Christian video I ever watched, and it changed my life. This video is so well done, and it introduced me to worship through music. Now, Casting Crowns is my all-time FAVORITE band, and I can't wait to see them in person (whenever that may be). I'm also going to the 2013 WinterJam. Can't wait!
