Across the Street, Around the World


There's a call going out
Across the land in ev'ry nation,
A call to all who swear allegiance
To the cross of Christ;
A call to true humility,
To live our lives responsibly,
To deepen our devotion
To the cross, at any price.

Let us then be sober,
Moving only in the Spirit
As aliens and strangers
In a hostile foreign land;
The message we're proclaiming
Is repentance and forgiveness,
The offer of salvation
To the dying race of man.

To love the Lord our God
Is the heartbeat of our mission,
The spring from which
Our service overflows.
Across the street or around the world,
The mission's still the same,
Proclaim and live the truth
In Jesus' name.

As a candle is consumed
By the passion of the flame,
Spilling light unsparingly
Throughout a darkened room;
Let us burn to know Him deeper
Then our service flaming bright
Will radiate His passions
And blaze with holy light.
November is Missions Month in our church. But really, every day should be seen as a chance to share the gospel to a friend or loved one. Whether they may be the next-door-neighbors across the street, or a relative from across the sea, they need to hear about the Love of a Saviour. Why not take the time to talk to them or even sit down and pray for them? There's a world full of people who may have never heard of Jesus.

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
Matthew 28:19, 20
