5 Things Christians Should Be Doing

In the last post, we looked at our unity. We are the body of Christ, and should be acting as if we are. In this post, we will look with greater detail at what this means. For those of you who have not read Friday’s post, simply click here. In that post, we discussed how we are the body of Christ, and looked at the song We Are The Body by Casting Crowns.

In this song, five questions are asked, and these are 5 things Christians should be doing:

  1. Why aren’t His arms reaching?
  2. Why aren’t His hands healing?
  3. Why aren’t His words teaching?
  4. Why aren’t His feet going?
  5. Why is His love not showing?

1) Why aren’t His arms reaching?

Jesus was constantly reaching out to people. Whether they were injured, covered in sin, or self-righteous, He always reached out to help them...

If We Are The Body

if we are the body

Today we will look at the song If We Are The Body by Casting Crowns. This song is now one of my favorites, because of the message it brings. It is amazing how a good songwriter (like the one who wrote this song) can fit so much information into a few verses.

In this song, we hear the word “body” fairly often. The phrase “if we are the body…” is also repeated throughout the song. What is the body?

In this song, the term “body” refers to us. We are the body of Christ. As a Christian, you are a part of the body of Christ.

If we are the body
Why aren’t His arms reaching?
Why aren’t His hands healing?
Why aren’t His words teaching?

We make up the body of Christ. Jesus was given power over all things, and that is the same power we are able to use as Christians...

Someone Worth Dying For

someoneworthdyingfor

This is the song “Someone Worth Dying For” performed by MIKESCHAIR.

For this post I selected a song titled Something Worth Dying For. This is an extremely encouraging song. Why is it encouraging? This song by MIKESCHAIR shows that God considered us worth dying for. Many people have a hard time believing that God loves them enough to die for them, and this is addressed in this portion of the song:

Am I more than flesh and bone?
Am I really something beautiful?
Yeah, I want to believe, I want to believe that
I’m not just some wandering soul
That you don’t see and you don’t know
Yeah, I want to believe, Jesus help me believe 
That I am someone worth dying for

That question is asked by many people. We are told in the Bible that we are not just here, but here for a purpose...

There Will Be A Day

there will be a day

This song is titled “There Will Be A Day” and is sung by Jeremy Camp.

I try to hold on to this world with everything I have 
But I feel the weight of what it brings, and the hurt that trys to grab 
The many trials that seem to never end, His word declares this truth, 
that we will enter in this rest with wonders anew 
But I hold on to this hope and the promise that He brings 
That there will be a place with no more suffering 

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears 
There will be a day when the burdens of this place, will be no more, we’ll see Jesus face to face 
But until that day, we’ll hold on to you always 

Jeremy Camp starts his song saying he tries to hold on to this world with everything he has, but the weight is too great...

More Beautiful You

more beautiful you

There could never be a more beautiful you
Don’t buy the lies, disguises and hoops, they make you jump through
You were made to fill a purpose that only you could do
So there could never be a more beautiful you

This one is for all the ladies out there. As Johnny Diaz says in this song, there could never be a more beautiful you. No amount of money, and no guy, can make you more beautiful.

Little girl fourteen flipping through a magazine
Says she wants to look that way
But her hair isn’t straight, her body isn’t fake
And she’s always felt overweight

Well, little girl fourteen I wish that you could see
That beauty is within your heart
And you were made with such care, your skin, your body and your hair
Are perfect just the way they are

You do not need a certain hairstyle...
