This week at church one of the Worship Songs was We Believe from the Newsboys:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MVo2nEF_qag  Lyrics below…    As it was playing – I was thinking about when GMM started and we needed to have a Statement of Faith that we could all stand upon.  We came up with 5 principles that we believed to be a must if we were going to stand as one in unity in what our foundation should be.    This song makes some great points on what we should see as a foundation of beliefs as we stand for Christ Jesus.
When you listen to the Story behind the song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV2jehiI0Ok  it was inspired by a Great Man by the name of Billy Graham who was a Rock for Christianity.
Please read the lyrics below and enjoy listening to the song…

“We Believe”

In this time of desperation
When all we know is doubt and fear
There is only One Foundation
We believe, We believe
In this broken generation
When all is dark, You help us see
There is only One Salvation
We believe, We believe


So, let our faith be more than anthems
Greater than the songs we sing
And in our weakness and temptations
We believe, We believe!


Let the lost be found and the dead be raised!
In the here and now, let love invade!
Let the church live love our God will see
We believe, We believe!
And the gates of hell will not prevail!
For the power of God, has torn the vail!
Now we know Your love will never fail!
We believe, We believe!

We believe in God the Father
We believe in Jesus Christ
We believe in the Holy Spirit
And He’s given us new life!
We believe in the crucifixion!
We believe that He conquered death!
We believe in the resurrection!
And He’s comin’ back,
He’s comin’ back again!
He’s comin’ back again!
We believe!
We believe

I am truly inspired by the words “We Believe”   as a Christian we should be known for what that is…  If Christ is truly shining and working through us – those around us will know what it is that we believe in.    I have been working on being more courageous in my walk and as another song would state – being a little reckless.  The words of being “Politically Correct” can often hold us back on what we are really supposed to be doing in the name of Jesus Christ.   If you have not read my Blog on “Radical Truth and Grace” – please go back and read it.    Christ is our prime example of what it means to………
