“God’s Work, Our Hands”

 

John 13:34-35 “I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another.  By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

 

This Sunday many congregations in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America will be gathering for “God’s Work, Our Hands Sunday;”taking a break from our usual Sunday routines to participate in service projects that bear witness to our identity – “one church, freed in Christ to love and serve our neighbor.”

 

Participating in a life marked by service to neighbor allows us to live out one of our most basic convictions as Lutherans: “All of life in Jesus Christ — every act of service, in every daily calling, in every corner of life — flows freely from a living, daring confidence in God’s grace.”    We love others because we have been loved!

 

“Love One Another”

      1. Love One Another - Greg Ronning

 

Love one another, Share your heart
Love one another, Let it start
The magic of love isn’t magic at all
It’s you and me in Christ, Yeah, doing it all

 

Hearts weren’t meant to stand alone
Hearts weren’t made out of cold grey stone
Together in love there’s a chance
We can turn mourning into a dance

 

Love one another, Share your heart
Love one another, Let it start
The magic of love isn’t magic at all
It’s you and me in Christ, Yeah, doing it all

 

On the horizon there’s a shining light
There’s an end to the lonely night
It ain’t no star or shinning sun
It’s you and me together in the Kingdom as one

 

Love one another, Share your heart
Love one another, Let it start
The magic of love isn’t magic at all
It’s you and me in Christ, Yeah, doing it all

 

When you see somebody down and out
Give them love not another reason to doubt
As long as someone’s hurt you’re never free
give them a hand, give them some love to see

 

Love one another, Share your heart
Love one another, Let it start
The magic of love isn’t magic at all
It’s you and me in Christ, Yeah, doing it all
