Let it be Love

Praise Thursday!

Hello, good afternoon, and a happy Praise Thursday to you!
Today we transitioned from the topic of ‘Fingerprints of God’ to our Lifeline theme, ‘Let it be Love’. We talked about the lyrics of the songs “Let it be Love’ from Family Force 5, which you can listen to here, and ‘Evidence’ by Citizen Way, which you can listen to here!

“I’ve never seen a soul set free
Through an argument
I’ve never seen a hurt get healed
In a protest
But I’ve seen sinners turned to saints
Because of grace
It’s love, love that lights the way,
Love that lights the way”

These lyrics really echo our theme verse for Lifeline this year, which is John 13:34-35
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”

We are called to be reflections of God and His love. Life is 10% what happens, but 90% how we react to it. So when we talk about ‘Letting it be Love’, the ‘it’ is our response. We need to be responding to every situation in our lives with God’s love.

Ben Calhoun got to sit down with Newreleasetoday about their song ‘Evidence’. He said…
“Christianity isn’t something I can argue to bring someone to Christ. It’s not a flag on a field, it’s not a sign in my yard. It’s the real, tangible evidence of Jesus. He’s way better at drawing people to Himself than I am. All I can do is be His messenger. I’ll be the mailman, not the message.”

A Musical Mystery Monday!

Joe and I are back from NRB! It was an incredible trip, but it is good to be back here with you in rainy Ohio. Today was Mystery Monday, which meant the return of the Mystery Box! Since I never get to do Monday shows, Joe let me hide an item in the mystery box! I did do a Monday show with him over Christmas break, and he hid a razor in there, so today it was my turn!
I have to admit, Joe seemed pretty stumped until Lopez called in, but congrats to Lopez from Mt. Vernon who correctly guessed what the item was! He will receive a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley! The item was a guitar capo!

Returning from Florida, we have so many points and takeaways from NRB, but one of Joe’s big highlights was listening to Dr. Tony Evans speak on Wednesday night at NRB. To really sum up what Dr. Evans said, Joe said this:
“Part of our call as Christians is to go out and fix what is broken. We can’t sit back and just watch things break, we have to be proactive in fixing what is broken.”
Dr. Evans is on the forefront of racial reconciliation and he really convicted us that evening, which made it a highlight for all 11 of us.
Here’s a link to the recap video I did of our trip! Check it out!

Lifeline 2017 is coming up at the end of this month! Our theme this year is ‘Let it be Love’ based off the song from Family Force 5, and John 13-:34-35, which reads:
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another.”
