My Brother’s Keeper?

This is not a deep theological dissertation of Cain and Abel (maybe in another post!), rather it is a short exposition of what showing God’s love means, and how to do it. I was listening to Matt Maher this morning while doing homework and this song came on, (click here to have a listen). I am currently writing a sermon on Psalm 131 and being touched by the depths of God’s Word, along with a moving song by Matt Maher I thought I should comment, or let Matt comment for me. In the video below he has a quote, “What determines the worth of the Love of God is the church living it out” and there is truth in that.

The love of God is exhibited by the death of Christ on the cross, Romans 5.8 reads, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” How has the death and resurrection of Christ changed your life? How are you showing it? Read Matt’s quote again.

This is an opportune time, brothers and sisters, as we approach Easter and the celebration of the resurrection of our Lord. Show the worth of God and plead in prayer on behalf of those who are lost and encourage and invite them to come to church. We all need the Gospel for salvation, there is no other way. Acts 4.12 reads, “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

I would like to encourage you to listen Matt Maher’s music often. It is theologically sound (from the songs that I have heard) and he is a man that truly loves the Word (from the times I have heard him talk about it) and he genuinely cares about the lost. Good music, mixed with good theology is never a bad thing.

Matt Maher on being your brother’s keeper.
