Song: Here to Love

at the end of the day, instead of judging a person and not liking who they are and just ignoring them... take the time and ask them how their day has been, how their life is going; because life doesn't last forever.
we figure, "hey, yeah I'm going to live these days, doing whatever I want... and then I'll get serious and think about stuff once I'm finished and old and lived a fun life."

But what if we don't live for that long?
because we can't control everything. things happen and we can do nothing to change it.


We think we got it made
And then something happens
And we have no control
Nothing we say or do
Can change it
We wonder why it is
That life ends up like this
With tragedy and death
With sadness and depress

CHORUS:
If we could do anything
To make a difference
In the hearts of people
If we could just love them
Because we’re not God
If we could just love them
Because we’re not God
And we’re here
To love.

No matter how hard we try
How loud we raise our voice
How rich we are how many friends we have
In the bigness of the universe
Could anything be heard?

CHORUS


We hold people’s mistakes against them
As if we could ever forgive them
But you know all of us
We mess up every day and
Jesus he sacrificed himself
So that we never have to die

CHORUS


He took my place
He never judged me
And if I believe
I am truly set free
To live for eternity
With Jesus

Until then,

If we could do anything
To make a difference
In the hearts of people
If we could just love them
Because we’re not God
If we could just love them
Like God
And we’re here
To love. 

if we could just love them, because we're not God.
you see, it's really not up to us to judge people.
we need to love them.

i mean, maybe this is going to sound really out there and like, are you serious? but... reach out to people. actually reach out to people and love them. care about people.


Live a life of love, just as Christ did.
