Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

To Answer Christ’s Call

Wherever they went,

the good news was spread;

Lord Jesus had died,

then raised from the dead.

The power of God,

now passed on to all;

who repent from sin,

and answer Christ’s call.

No opposition,

would deter their task;

as people received,

joy in all God asked.

The word of the Lord,

faithfully went out;

God brought the hearers,

soon too, were devout.

Whatever He asks,

if we choose to do;

His power released,

and our faith made new.

Let us too, go forth,

and share of His grace;

may many receive,

His Holy embrace.

Imagine the day,

when we’ll see His face;

encircled in love,

wrapped up in His grace.

(Responding to Acts 13:46-52)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son to make the way for us to enter into relationship with You. Thank You that His death on the cross broke down barriers on our behalf, and granted us access to You. Thank You that the very same power that raised Jesus from the dead, is alive and active, and dwells in the hearts of all who believe. Forgive us for our fears and for the areas in our lives where we have not been faithful to You. Teach us to trust You completely, and to be true to You in all that we say and do. May our faithfulness unto You, lead those who are looking, into Your loving embrace. Let many see Your light in us, through our love. Lead us and guide us so that we may walk in Your Spirit and truth. Amen.
