Does your faith have feet?

I was listening to my Ipod today and a song by Casting Crowns came on. It's a song that resonates in me; one that makes me take stock of my life and my walk. It's called, 'If We are the Body'. If you haven't heard the song, the chorus says:

But if we are the body
Why aren't His arms reaching?
Why aren't His hands healing?
Why aren't His words teaching?
And if we are the body
Why aren't His feet going?
Why is His love not showing them there is a way?

If we are the body of Christ, then why are so many of us neglecting to do what He has commanded us to do? We should be helping the widows and orphans, we should be leading the lost to Him, we should be welcoming the traveler into our midst and loving him to Christ.

But something else that struck me is that we should also be walking the walk among our leaders. If we, the children of God, refuse to stand up and speak out for what we know to be right, if we refuse to be leaders ourselves, then we leave this country, this world, to those who don't believe. We leave control of this country to pagans, athiests, and those who would remove God from every aspect of our nation.

We must vote! We must write letters to our local, state, and federal leaders. We must participate in ways that will be God honoring and effective or this country will fall in the same manner that Rome did.

We must put feet on our faith! We must Go! This country was founded and built upon a the solid rock of Jesus and we, the sons and daughters of the almighty God, need to wake up and stand up and fight to keep that solid rock from being chipped away and undermining the stability of The United States of America.

Does your faith have feet? Are you willing to go when God calls?


  1. This is absolutely right Danielle! There are so many that will say, "God puts the leaders in place". This is true, but he uses us to do so, if we'll let him. We must seek his guidance and then act on what he leads us to do. Thanks for the post!

  2. Right on, sister! Great post!

    God tells us in His word to "GO, SHARE THE GOOD NEWS". Being a believer requires more than just going to church on Sunday mornings, evenings, and Wednesday nights or whenever the doors are open. We are to live for Christ. Allow Him to transform us into "His Image" so that others (believers and unbelievers) can see that we are to be "in" this world NOT "of" this world!

    Just my thoughts, thanks again for the post!
