louder than before

1 Corinthians 9:23 (NASB) --- I do all things for the sake of the gospel, so that I may become a fellow partaker of it.

For some time I have been touched by a song I want to share the lyrics with you today.  Before I share the song, remember that God called each of to share His good news, the truth that changes lives.  It is all about Jesus.

I listened this pastor weekend to Jim Hamilton from the Dakotas talk about the fact that sharing our faith ought to be a natural conversation.  He  talked about people getting saved at the Sturgis Biker events.  It was awesome.

What are we doing to speak louder than before.  Here is the song from Jeremy Camp:

Hear now this declaration
From out across the nations
We need to wake up and understand

Many hurting hearts are crying
But our voices seem to be dying
Can you see the battle raging on?

We are the light to reach this world
We are the salt preserving these souls
Let's show them the love that we've received now

We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We have the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

Take every chance that you can
Move together taking a stand
Never losing heart, we'll speak as one

We need to be the image of Christ
Show love and serve at all times
We can make a difference in these lands

We are the light to reach this world
We are the salt preserving these souls
Let's show them the love that we've received now

[ Jeremy Camp Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com
We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We have the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

Every thing's so surreal
But this urgency I feel
We should be reaching out to
All these desperate pleas

Oh, the meet is real, can't you feel
Let's call it revolution
My beating heart is breaking for them
That's why I'm speaking now
That's why I'm speaking now

We are, we are in desperation
We need to reach this generation
We are speaking louder than before

We are the hope that's been forgotten
We are the love that will be brought and
We are speaking louder than before

The message never changes.  The methods have to change.  It is time to speak louder than before.  Why?  It is all about Jesus!

John 3:17 (NASB) --- For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
