If we are the body
This song by Casting Crowns always challenges me every time I listen to it.
It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in trying to fade into the faces
The girls teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know
But if we are the body
Why aren't his arms reaching?
Why aren't his hands healing?
Why aren't his words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't his feet going?
Why is his love not showing them there is a way?
There is a way
A traveller is far away from home
He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgemental glances
Tells him that his chances are better out on the road.
Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ
Jesus is the way
(Lyrics Mark HAll Music Casting Crowns)
