Will You Let God Send You?

Teach us to love, the way you loved us.
Send us out, send us out.
Pour out your fire, and flow through our lives.
Send us out. Send us out.

These lyrics come from a song by Elevation Worship entitled This City Is Yours.

This past Sunday evening, as we sang these words together as a church family following a time of prayer and dedication, I found myself overwhelmed with their significance for myself and every follower of Jesus.

You see, God’s love and Holy Spirit empowerment are not for our benefit alone. We are people who have been sent out. Therefore, this incredible love is poured into us by the Spirit of God, who then empowers us to follow Jesus in our thoughts, words, attitudes, and actions. This love is then placed on display and used for the glory of God.

Will you let God send you?
