On the Front Line

On the front line
Of the Kingdom of God
Under His banner
Proclaiming His love
With our words
With our deeds
On our feet
On our knees
Our hands and our hearts
Our minds and our lives
Wholly devoted
To sharing His light
On the darkness within
And the darkness without
Bringing wholeness and healing
To a world full of doubt
On the front line
I yield all that I am
To be all His own
Held close in His hand

I wrote this during Pastor Dan’s message yesterday morning. His message was based on the scripture passage Romans 12: 1-2. “therefore, I urge you brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to Him – this is your spiritual (reasonable) act 0f w0rship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.” At the beginning of his message he used the phrase “on the front line” and it stuck. 🙂
