Body of Christ

Love of Christ shed abroad 
In our hearts 
That's who we are 

Perfect Love drives out fear 
Kingdom has come 
It is right here 

We're His hands 
We're His feet 
There are many needs to meet 

Let His Spirit fill you up 
Nothing greater than showing His Love 

This is the day that the Lord has made 
Let us rejoice and be glad I say 
One by one, reaching out 
To this World 
This is the hour 

We are saints in the Earth 
Serving our King in His Holy Church 
Set apart to do His Work 
Body of Christ, Ambassadors 

This is the day that the Lord has made 
Let us rejoice and be glad I say 
Two by two, going out 
Helping this World 
Keeping our vow 

You know the time is now 
Spread God's Love all around 
No more tears, no more pain 
Heaven on Earth 
It's all the same 

You were chose before the World 
Was ever created by God's Words 
He picked you out before your birth 
And called you His because you were 

In Him you can do all things 
You are more than a conqueror 
Just believe 
Every knee, let us bow 
To the Lord of all 
Join us now

Inspiration Behind the Song

Before Christ ascended to Heaven, He gave us the “Great Commission” before leaving. He told us to finish what He had begun, and continue His work in the Earth, making it more like Heaven, restoring humanity back to God and His blessings. He gave Christians all authority and dominion, having conquered Satan at the Cross, and told us to go make disciples of every nation, and baptize them into the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and teach everything He had taught. 

As followers of Christ, we can show this same perfect love for others, and even meet all of the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs of the oppressed. We are literally His Body, called to do this. I wrote this song to remind us of this mission statement we have received as a Church from Him. 

The Greek word for church is “ecclesia”, which means “called out ones”. The Body of Christ is exactly that, we are separate from this world, as the Church, here to represent our Lord and Savior. We are “Ambassadors of Heaven”. Moreover, Church is “a people”, not a building, and as Christ went about 24/7 spreading blessings in the Earth, so shall we, as His hands and feet.
