02. If We Are The Body

Casting Crowns
by Casting Crowns



 

It's crowded in worship today
As she slips in, trying to fade into the faces
The girls' teasing laughter is carrying farther than they know
Farther than they know

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
There is a way

A traveler is far away from home
He sheds his coat and quietly sinks into the back row
The weight of their judgmental glances
Tells him that his chances are better out on the road

Jesus paid much too high a price
For us to pick and choose who should come
And we are the body of Christ

Jesus is the way

Behind the Song:
“I wrote this for my youth group while pastoring in Alabama while trying to talk to them about James 2. Little did I know then that I was writing that song for every youth group I’ve had since. It addresses a problem I’ve seen in churches all over, that churches are a lot like a circle. Circles are great if you’re inside the circle, but most people find themselves outside that circle for whatever reason. There’s not a sign on the door, and no one’s really saying it to you, but you get the feeling that they’ve got everybody they need. You’re welcome to come, but you’re not really going to be part of the circle, and that’s certainly not what the Bible teaches.” – Mark Hall (Casting Crowns) James 2:1-9 / 1 John 5:19-21
