Satan loves to cause division;
It’s his great delight –
Coaxing us to take up sides, and say,
“You’re wrong! I’m right!”
But Jesus’ great desire is that
We’d all be one, in Him.
He came to give us all great hope
Of joy and peace within.
The peace He offers goes beyond
What we can understand;
And spreads from heart to heart as we
Start joining hand in hand.
Our enemy will not let up.
He’ll battle all the more
To keep us in our corners ‘cause
He’s out to win the war.
But with the love of Christ in us,
We can begin to mend
A country that’s been torn apart.
But only if we’ll bend
Our stiffened knees, first to the Lord,
In humble gratitude;
Then serve each other, as He did,
That hope might be renewed.
“…if I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet,
you also ought to wash one another’s feet.
For I have given you an example that you also
should do just as I have done for you.
… Love one another. Just as I have loved you,
you must also love one another.”
John 13:14,34 HCSB
