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.”
