March 9, 2020—

Today’s song by Casting Crowns reminds us we must not attempt to exclude others from our faith due to our personal feelings—He calls them all: “If We Are The Body.”

Jesus paid much too high a price

For us to pick and choose who should come

And we are the Body of Christ

Today, let us pray for the awareness and acceptance that Jesus calls everyone to Him, no matter how we feel about each one—and strive to lead everyone closer to Him.

Thanks for listening today.


Here are the lyrics in full:

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 traveler 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

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?

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the Body of Christ

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?
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?
Jesus is the way
