Sunday Song Lyrics: "You Can Have Me" by Sidewalk Prophets

These Simple TruthsSidewalk Prophets: CD CoverLast Sunday I sat in church and listened to my husband preach a moving message on Mark 5.

One line stood out for me in the midst of all the wonderful points he made.

"Faith that moves you to action is faith that God will recognize." 

That line in the sermon brought these song lyrics to my mind...

When did love become unmoving?
When did love become unconsuming?
Forgetting what the world has told me
Father of love, You can have me
You can have me

There is so much more to this song, but I love the chorus. 

Love is the force that drives us to join our lives with another in marriage. It gives a mother strength to place herself in danger to save her child's life. But when did love for God become so shallow that it inspires nothing more than a few hours in church each week?

If I say to God, "You can have me," I must be prepared to act. God didn't redeem us to set us on a shelf and look at us. He wants us to be useful, and he has a use in mind for each of us.

Does your faith move you to action? can have me.
