For this week’s blog, I’m posting a song that I co-wrote with my friend Abbie Cox. It’s a song for the church that talks about Jesus’ call for his disciples to do “greater works than these.” I take that to be a pretty serious call. All too often we look at Jesus’ call for us to heal the sick, feed the hungry, and help the poor as symbolic. We end up leaving the work for somebody else.
This song is a call for you to look around you as an individual to turn the blessings that God has given to you back into the service of the Kingdom of God. That is, after all, the reason we’re here…to be God’s Kingdom on earth as it is in heaven.
Enjoy the song!
I’ve been really exceitd to see PV’s mentality change just in the past year from bringing people INTO the church, to encouraging the church to go OUT. This year for Christmas, rather than doing the same Christmas program its done for over a decade, we’ve themed this Christmas Christmas to GO (picture a chinese to-go box as the image . Everyone in the Northland who has ever wnted to see The Singing Christmas Tree has come to PV to see it EXCEPT those who are homeless or in prison. So where are we taking the message of Christ? To the homeless and to prisons. I’m pretty exceitd about this I think this is one small way we see the Kingdom of God expanding in a real, and practical way.
