Taking It Deeper

Lyrics

It's not a flag on a field

It's not a sign in my yard

Not a cause that I join

Not a phrase on a coin

It's the change in my heart

 

Mercy and grace and compassion

They're only words without action

 

I need hands that are open

Reaching out to broken hearts

Cuz' that's the only way this world

Will ever know who You are

Love is the evidence

Love is the evidence

 

Might be the pain that you share

Might be the time that you spend

Or the war you don't fight

Backing down from your pride

After all in the end

 

My life wasn't changed by an argument

That never would have been enough

My life was changed by the evidence of love

 

Your hands that were open

Reaching out to my broken heart

TID-bits

SCRIPTURE REFERENCES

John 13:35

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.

——————————————

1 John 4:19-21

We love because he first loved us.  If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. And this commandment we have from him: whoever loves God must also love his brother.

——————————————

1 John 3:17-18

But if anyone has the world’s goods and sees his brother in need, yet closes his heart against him, how does God’s love abide in him?  Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
