People Still Need The Lord!

Back in the teenage days of my faith, there was a song called “People Need The Lord!” sung by Steve Green.  I have been thinking about the word of that song a lot lately.  It was such a true, humble and sweet reminder of the obvious that we tend to forget.

“Everyday they pass me by,
I can see it in their eyes.
Empty people filled with care,
Headed who knows where?”

So many of us in this world feel that we have been and are being passed by.  Our eyes are open, but our hearts are empty and our lives are filled and overflowing with challenge and frustration.  We are headed in a direction, but often it is taking us no where.

“On they go through private pain,
Living fear to fear.
Laughter hides their silent cries,
Only Jesus hears.”

We hurt and there is almost no one anywhere that has any idea why or how it really feels.  We are scared, afraid and filled with fear that is sometimes chased away by fear.  We pretend that everything is okay, we even try to convince ourselves.  We smile, laugh and play the game, but we know the truth and we think we are the only one, but Jesus hears not just the outside, but most especially the inside cry of our heart.

“People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize, people need the Lord?”

He is the way, the truth and the life – it really is just this simple!

“We are called to take His light
To a world where wrong seems right.
What could be too great a cost
For sharing Life with one who’s lost?”

Our job is to let Him light our lives and then carry that light and share it with everyone, everywhere and in every way that we can.  That light will illuminate the darkness and reveal the truth that the enemy has blinded us to.  The most important thing we can do after receiving the life He gives, is to share it with others.  This is the lost getting found.

“Through His love our hearts can feel
All the grief they bear.
They must hear the Words of Life
Only we can share.”

As we experience His love, we can hear, see and feel what others are going through and only then do we deserve the right to share with them the Words of Life that can change our lives and eternities.

“People need the Lord, people need the Lord
At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door.
People need the Lord, people need the Lord.
When will we realize that we must give our lives,
For people need the Lord.”

He is the way the truth and the life – it really is just that simple!

“People need the Lord.”
