The Voices That Cry Out 'Save Me'

Updated on August 16, 2012

"Christ has no body on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours. Yours are the eyes through which Christ's compassion for the world is to look out; yours are the feet with which He is to go about doing good; and yours are the hands with which He is to bless us now." ~Saint Teresa of Avila

While dealing with the situation of death in my own family currently, I'm took me years back, to a song that has so much meaning to me, and every time I watch it, I cry.

So many people take this life for granted. We go day to day not caring about others as much as we do ourselves, and at any given time, our life can be ebbed away. I'm sure many of you have dealt with loosing a loved one to suicide, cancer, car wrecks, and so many other ways people's life can be taken from them without notice.

While I view the song I'm linking to this hub as purely spiritual, there is so much to consider physically as well. This song explains the fact that each of us have a set amount of time we have to live, and if we pay attention to the people around us, we have the power and ability to save someone else from their predestined end. We may not save many, but just one person makes a huge difference. From being there for someone who has no one, and is contemplating suicide, to showing someone the power saving grace of God, we can make a difference.

Though we don't see numbers over peoples heads signifying their time left on earth, as we walk down the street, they are there, and only God sees them. So watch this video if you would, and allow it to really sink in. What if you were the girl in the end...death right before your eyes and you had no clue. Wouldn't you want someone to save you?

He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Mark 16:15.

Now that you've hopefully watched it, you officially know your purpose as a christian - no excuses. You are here for two major purposes. Relationship with God and reaching the lost. All around you are people dying and going to hell. So are you going to sit back and not share the gift of God's love with them? The gift of salvation? Are you going to be too hesitant because of how you look or how you feel? Are you so worried about how others view you that you would turn a blind eye to someone in desperate need for a hope? What about to the man dying with cancer? Would you just let him die without knowing Jesus? What if his potential salvation could heal him? Imagine what a difference you alone would make in not just his life, but his entire family? Take out the spiritual and look purely physical - there's a girl who is shunned by all. She is an outcast, unloved, unpopular, a hermit. While she contemplates suicide, no one knows. The voices keep telling her it's just not worth it, and you can be the voice that says it is. Life is so precious. People are precious but we are too focused on ourselves to care. We have a lost and dying world out there that needs to be reached. We are the hands and feet of Christ. It is our job, and if we choose to ignore it, their blood will be on our hands.

      You are absolutely right about our two purposes...to have a relationship with God and to spread the good news. Few people share Christ and few know what it means to walk with him every day. May we all do what we can and fulfill our purpose in our short life. Voted up, interesting and useful.
