John Mark McMillan – 2nd thoughts. Knowing & Doing

So the other day I read two postings that really touched me. The first was the blog post prior to this one, a survey of what the Millenials in America thought about poverty.

Shortly thereafter, I watched a wonderful new video preview of John Mark McMillan’s new song “Future/Past”.

So here is the ‘second thought’ of the day…

The Second… Rich lyric. Listening, and it’s a treat seeing people I know joining in worship, I’m struck by the thought that we ‘know’ something when we ‘do’ it. I “knew” baseball as a kid when I played the game, I ‘knew’ the richness of a worship-worthy God when I chose to enter in and ‘do’ worship.
In like manner, I come to ‘know’ the restorative, overcoming power of God to change lives -not when I simply read about it and acknowledge its truth- but when I ‘do’ the restorative, overcoming stuff for other people. We ‘know’ as we ‘engage’ and ‘do’.

Let’s go. Africa. America. Wherever and everywhere. Make it a wonderful infection… I think our Father likes that.

I want to be a doer of the Word, not just a hearer.

I want to do what He’s in the midst of doing

I want to gladden His heart within the realms of men and upon this Earth

There are a people wandering, looking for the living God, and yearning to travel with Him.

I do not want to ‘white-knuckle it’, but I do not want to ‘sit this one out’.
