“Follow You” by Leeland is a song we will share this Thursday at our outdoor concert of worship. We chose it because of the line, “use my hands Lord, use my feet.”. It is a great song of consecration. A song that says, Here am I Lord, send me.

When speaking about the song, Leeland shared the following.

“God’s there, right beside every person in the world. Now is the time for us to get up and follow in God’s footsteps. It’s really that simple. Find out where God is and run to meet him there! We know that God’s heart aches for the poor and the needy. They are His children too. As we reach out to people that are hurting, our problems begin to shrink, and we draw closer to God’s heart in the process! This is what the song “Follow You” is all about.”

Here are the lyrics.

You lived among the least of these
The weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy for me to turn away.
All my needs You have supplied.
When I was dead You gave me life.
How could I not give it away so freely?

And I’ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God.
Follow You into the world.

Use my hands use my feet
To make Your kingdom come
Through the corners of the earth
Until Your work is done
`cause faith without works is dead
And on the cross Your blood was shed
So how could I not give it away so freely?

And I’ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God.
Follow You into the world.

Follow You

God’s there, right beside every person in the world. Now is the time for us to get up and follow in God’s footsteps. It’s really that simple. Find out where God is and run to meet him there! We know that God’s heart aches for the poor and the needy. They are His children too. As we reach out to people that are hurting, our problems begin to shrink, and we draw closer to God’s heart in the process! This is what the song “Follow You” is all about.

You lived among the least of these
The weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy for me to turn away.
All my needs You have supplied.
When I was dead You gave me life.
How could I not give it away so freely?

And I’ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God.
Follow You into the world.

Use my hands use my feet
To make Your kingdom come
Through the corners of the earth
Until Your work is done
`cause faith without works is dead
And on the cross Your blood was shed
So how could I not give it away so freely?

And I’ll follow You into the homes that are broken.
Follow You into the world.
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God.
Follow You into the world.

I give all myself.
I give all myself
I give all myself. To You.

Matthew 25:31-40
The Sheep and the Goats

31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. ’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you? ’
40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me. ’

John 12:26
26 Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.

Let’s follow Jesus together, no matter where it takes us, that will be the best place to be.
