Unified for the right cause
Recently my church joined together in a night of prayer. We came together and joined the nation to cry out to God.
One of the speakers said something that really stuck with me. He said,” 19 people (terrorists) brought a nation to its knees on September 11th, 2001. What would happen if we joined together as a church.”
Now before this time I wrote a song called Unify Us. I’ll be putting the lyrics at the end but I just wanted to post a song again that has been on my heart and explain it a little bit.
Those 19 terrorists were unified. Now they weren’t unified for the right reasons but unified they were.
Imagine the possibilities off Christians all across the globe unifying for one cause.
What cause you ask?? To know Christ and make Him known.
That’s our goal here at Fort Bend Fellowship. “To know Christ and make Him known.”
I love it. I mean our purpose on earth is to glorify God after all. To do this we must make Him known to everyone.
But what about community problems like poverty, sex slavery, abortion, murder, and etc. What if we unified against those things? What would the world look like and how would the world benefit from truly knowing a God full of mercy and grace?
How would the world benefit from truly knowing a God who selflessly sent His Son to die for us?
Wouldn’t that cause a movement? Wouldn’t this movement show people dying to themselves daily? Wouldn’t this movement involve a people that would be more concerned about their neighbors suffering than themselves?
That’s the inspiration behind this song. The concept of coming together as one people. Coming together as one church for one cause: To known Christ and make Him known.
Here are the lyrics to my song. I really hope you enjoy them and I challenge you to think about that idea and how you can unify with the local church and the Christians around you.
The world is dark; it needs your grace.
We call upon your name to fill this place.
The world is sick; it needs your mercy.
Will you open up the floodgates and let the whole world see?
The world is cold; it needs your love and the purifying power of your only Son.
Unify us to know You and make You known.
We are your people.
We are your Church.
We are your hands.
We are your feet.
Unify us for one cause.
