Pass It On, part 1: It Only Takes a Spark

To get a fire going

And soon all those around

Can warm up in its glowing

That’s how it is with God’s love

Once you’ve experienced it

You spread His love to ev’ryone

You want to pass it on

I remember singing this song around the campfire at summer camp.  Think about the last thing someone shared with you, and the most recent thing you were excited to share with someone else.  What do you remember about it?

Passing along the things we know and experience is part of life.  But intentionally passing along things can seem heavy when we talk about discipleship.  So, for this first part of Pass it On, I just want to focus on the most basic thing we get to share, love.  There isn’t a mystery behind sharing love with a friend or neighbor.  Just do it, and if they ask why, tell them that God loves them, and so do you.

  1. Do something to show your neighbor you love them.
  2. If they ask, “Why”, tell them that you know God loves them, and so do you, and that God gives us so much love to share that you wanted to share it.

Easy-peasy! So pass it on.

I wish for you my friend

This happiness that I’ve found

You can depend on Him

It matters not where you’re bound

I’ll shout it from the mountain top

I want my world to know

The Lord of love has come to me

I want to pass it on
