If I could....

If I could jump on a plane right now I would...
If I could kiss those cheeks, hold those hands, hear that laugh again I would..
These are the faces of the fatherless.
These children are the orphans spoken of in James. The ones we are called to care for.

Will we turn our faces away??

Or will we let God break us. Break our hearts.
The cry of the oppressed is rising up. Calling for the Church to come and rescue.
What are we going to do?
Let's REACH out. With our hands, with our hearts. Let's STAND up.

That God's glory and majesty be made known. That the Church would be united, every tongue, tribe, and nation. That we may be known as a people that LIVES OUT every day the love of Christ. To him who is given much, much is required. We have been given oh so much.
How are we going to respond??

"In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds."
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do."
James 2:17-18
