2.15.12 [Love on the outside] By Pastor Glen Willet

15 Feb

On Valentine’s Day, WILLET, released their newest song, “Love on the Outside” as a free download and featured their lyric video and chord charts for that song. The song is based out of the Old Testament in which Nehemiah in chapter 9 reminds the people that it was God who placed a pillar of fire by night to light for them the way in which they were to go. God provided bread when they were hungry and water from a rock when they needed a drink. Some followed God, but many refused to listen.

Jesus, in the Gospel of Luke, taught a parable about a lamp. In Luke 18:16-18, says, “Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lampstand, so that those who come in may see the light.”

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, your light should be shining brightly. But is it shining only on Sunday? Is it shining only in the halls and vestibules of your church? Or is your light shining on the outside of the church walls? Is it shining in the streets with the homeless and the broken? Is your light casting beams of hope to the prisoner, to the widow and the orphan? Is your love shedding light on the abused, the hungry, and the diseased?

WILLET’s lyrics continue to share that Christ’s love forgives, restores, redeems and endures. Jesus is the friend that is closer than a brother. He wants a relationship with you. He loves you unconditionally. He gave His life for you. If you have a light, it is high time to let it shine till the whole world sees. And if you have a voice, than sing it out until the whole world hears.

How can you do that? Here is one way that you can shine your light and have your voice heard. You can help us at The Hunger Strike to complete our goal of packing 100,000 meals for the famine in East Africa. WILLET’s front man, Jeremy Willet, turns 27 this Saturday. To celebrate this, you could provide 42 meals with a donation of $27 HERE.
