Backwards Thinkig

There are more verses to this song but this is the one I woke up singing……

Lord, we need Your power, Lord, we need Your power 
Your kingdom in this hour, Lord, we need Your power 

Send Your power to build Your kingdom 
Send Your power to free the captives 
For Your power it is the answer 
To the hunger in our hearts, oh Lord 

We need Your touch, oh Lord 
We need You, send Your power

(Casey Corum)

I’ve been under the mistaken impression that I was to work to build His kingdom.  I was to convince the world they need Jesus and to turn from their sin. But that’s not Biblical.  I’m called to love them.

Christ gave us 2 commands.

1)Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, strength, and soul.

2)Love your neighbor as yourself.

All else hangs on these two.  Yet, many times we get the “all else” before these two and wonder why our lives seem off kilter.

Preaching at a lost and hungry world isn’t going to save them.

Repeatedly telling them they are going to hell isn’t going to get them to listen to what else we have to say.

If we don’t show them the LOVE of Christ, they will never accept the cleansing power of His blood.

On second thought, the first two verses are very relevant today.

Lord, we need Your touch, Lord, we need Your touch 
You’re reaching out to us, Lord, we need Your touch 

Your touch brings freedom 
Your touch brings healing
Your touch is the answer 
To the hunger in our hearts, oh Lord 

Lord, we need Your grace, Lord, we need Your grace 
Your merciful embrace, We need Your grace 

Your grace brings forgiveness 
Your grace brings acceptance 
Your grace, it is the answer 
To the hunger in our hearts, oh Lord 

What are you doing today to usher in God’s touch, God’s grace, and then God’s power.

I plan on just showing God’s love to anyone I come in contact with and let Him worry about how to use His power.
