By Our Love

We got the honor and privilege to hear Don Richardson' sharing at our church mission conference this weekend. Both Chris and I heard his sharing a while back while we were still in college. Chris heard him preached while he was in Arizona and I heard him when I was in Kansas. He is in late seventies now and it doesn't seem like he is slowing down. I heard that nowadays he travel to 40 different churches every year. What an inspiration and encouragement!

Mission month has ended. This song has been in my head since last week.

By Our Love
Written by Christy Nockels

Brothers, let us come together
Walking in the Spirit, there's much to be done...
We will come reaching, out from our comforts
And they will know us by our love...

Sisters, we were made for kindness
We can pierce the darkness as He shines through us...
We will come reaching, with a song of healing...
And they will know us by our love!

The time is now
Come Church arise...
Love with His hands
See with His eyes...
Bind it around you,
Let it never leave you,
And they will know us by our love...

Children, You are hope for justice,
Stand firm in the Truth now, set your hearts above
You will be reaching, long after we’re gone,
And they will know you by your love!

"Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” 
John 13:34-35
