LOVE: The Vision
John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This true love story of salvation is the most familiar yet the greatest ever told. Giving hope to a dying world, it proclaims we can find our peace and salvation all in one source, the God of this universe, through His son Jesus. Also in Matthew 22:37-40, Jesus himself gives the two greatest commandments to love in which hang all the law and the prophets: to “Love the Lord thy God will all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind” and “though shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”.
On the heels of the Sandy Hook massacre and the bombing in Boston, the fight against explicit gun-violence and other severely noticeable divisions in our world, there is a desperate need for acts of love and the Spirit of Love to freely flow throughout humanity. Now is the time for us to demonstrate with our hands and hearts how God’s love works in and through us as humans and how we can help our fellow brothers and sisters with action and deeds. So for starters, a percentage of proceeds from the purchase of this song will benefit a featured non-profit organization advocating non-violence or relevant acts of love and kindness in our society. Through this song and upcoming events, we want to be a blessing to others who have some form of need.
I believe it is God’s desire that we the church would continually come together as one voice to preserve unity, conquer fear, be committed to acts of giving and embrace His Spirit to fully operate in and through us that we can and will do powerful exploits in this earth for this generation and beyond, all in the name of Love. And through the awesome power of the Holy Spirit, the life and lyrics of this melody and your help we can be that voice to share the beautiful gift of salvation, experience the love of God and draw one soul, one hand and one heart at a time.
