Liefde in Aksie

Dit is waar liefde oorgaan tot aksie en nie net ‘n mooi woordjie bly.

Om ‘n verskil te maak … soos ons is, met wat ons het, waar ons kan.

Kortom … om die wêreld ‘n (baie) beter plek te maak.

Dit is waartoe ons geroep word … as Jesus-kinders … om Hom toe te laat om deur ons na ‘n gebroke wêreld te skyn, om hoop te bring waar hoop so min is, om gesond te maak met wat ons sê en doen.

Ons word nie geroep om passief te sit nie, om te kyk hoe als verval en net te sê … ai die wêreld vergaan.

Met ons Pappa-God se hulp – Sy Gees self in ons, kan ons ‘n verskil maak, ja hier en nou.

Sal jy die Here vra waar en hoe jy jou liggie kan laat skyn, sal jy gehoorsaam wees.

Dit is al wat ek jou wil vra om te doen met die vragie.

Kom ons raak betrokke by die seer van hierdie wêreld, ondersteun, wees die rede waarom mense weer begin glimlag en sê maar daar is nog goed, iemand gee rerig om.  Jesus in ons.

Ek laat jou met die kragtige lirieke van die volgende liedjie:

“Do Something”

I woke up this morning
Saw a world full of trouble now
Thought, how’d we ever get so far down
How’s it ever gonna turn around
So I turned my eyes to Heaven
I thought, “God, why don’t You do something?”
Well, I just couldn’t bear the thought of
People living in poverty
Children sold into slavery
The thought disgusted me
So, I shook my fist at Heaven
Said, “God, why don’t You do something?”
He said, “I did, I created you”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

I’m so tired of talking
About how we are God’s hands and feet
But it’s easier to say than to be
Live like angels of apathy who tell ourselves
It’s alright, “somebody else will do something”
Well, I don’t know about you
But I’m sick and tired of life with no desire
I don’t want a flame, I want a fire
I wanna be the one who stands up and says,
“I’m gonna do something”

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something

We are the salt of the earth
We are a city on a hill (shine shine, shine shine)
But we’re never gonna change the world
By standing still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still
No we won’t stand still

If not us, then who
If not me and you
Right now, it’s time for us to do something
If not now, then when
Will we see an end
To all this pain
It’s not enough to do nothing
It’s time for us to do something [x3]

(Matthew West)

Baie mooi dinge wil die Here in en deur ons doen, gaan ons aanmeld?  Ek sê ja.

LiG kan ons wees want die LiG self woon in ons.

Amen.
