Sunday’s Extras: Somebody Like Me

How many times have we been guilty of those judgmental glances? How many times have we waited for someone to act, when maybe God was telling us that somebody is me?

Once again our morning sermon serves as the theme for this week’s Sunday Extra. 

We are studying Missional Renaissance: “Rethinking My Thinking” and how we no longer want to be the best church in our community, but the best church FOR our community.  There is a big difference.

There is also a big difference in program development and people development.  We want people to come to us. But that’s not what Jesus did.  He went out.  He met people where they were hurting. Like Jesus, we need to be willing to go out into our community and the world.  That’s where the needs are met and the hurts healed.

I love this quote from the morning sermon. “The church is not our mission but the base for our mission”. 

Check out this song from Kentucky native Jason Crabb.  Yes, Jason is the former lead vocalist for the Crabb Family.  

How many times have we been guilty of those judgmental glances?  How many times have we waited for someone to act, when maybe God was telling us that somebody is me?

 

 

Here are the lyrics for my hearing impaired friends.

Somebody Like Me

The congregation parted like the Red Sea

When that ole drunk stumbled in down the aisle and took a seat

Right in the middle of Amazing Grace

He could feel the judgment they were passing

He thought to himself; ain’t that just how some folks act

He’s rather be on the street than in this place

And with tears on his face

 

 

 

You think somebody would put their arm around him

 

 

You think somebody would hit a knee

Pull him in

Say a prayer

That’s what I’m talking about right there

 

 

 

You think somebody would practice what they preach

 

 

And well I wonder who that somebody could be

Probably somebody like me

 

 

 

He’s got problems nobody wants a part of

 

 

We got up and slipped out

Nobody stood up

They don’t want to make a scene

So they let him walk out of there without a prayer

 

 

 

You think somebody would go against the grain

 

 

Be the one to run him down

Bring him back and turn him around

You think somebody would want to make a difference

I wonder who that somebody could be

Probably somebody like me

Oh, can I get a witness

 

 

 

You think somebody would put their arm around him

 

 

You think somebody would hit a knee

Pull him in

Say a prayer

That’s what I’m talking about right there

 

 

 

You think somebody would practice what they preach

 

 

And well I wonder who that somebody could be

Probably somebody like me
