Stepping Out in Love - v3

Our lives, in our beliefs
more than stepping out in faith
to truly act upon our convictions
being the model of Christ
not standing in the mud
stepping out in love instead

Putting on Christ
the garment of love, of mercy,
listening to the Spirit
the voice of God
speaking from the depths,
from within our own hearts

Going out, onto the waters
of uncertainty, of doubt,
doing the Master’s work
because we have been called
just like Peter, the others,
“Come, follow me.”

Living love, the nature of God
for our family, our neighbors
being Christ to someone in need
Going as we are sent, humbly, as servants
projecting the light of love
into the darkness of the world
