Spark

Pass It On (Kurt Kaiser)

Verse 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

Verse 2

What a wondrous time is spring
When all the trees are budding
The birds begin to sing
The flowers start their blooming
That’s how it is with God’s love
Once you’ve experienced it
You want to sing it’s fresh like spring
You want to pass it on

Verse 3

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

This song from the mid 1970’s was part of the Jesus Movement. The youth group at the church I grew up in would sing this song from time to time. What an example of the “Great Commission” and how 12 men could turn the world upside down.

Do we pass it on the way that we should? Are we displaying Christ to the world through our words and actions? Will people we know be able to say of us, they were different than the world? Do we really want the world to know that we are called out and separated unto Christ?

I pray that my life is showing a difference. That my words are the words He would have said. That those who know me, know that I am different from the world. I hope nuggets of thought and examples of my life might fall on some and persuade them to look into this great plan of redemption God created.

All I can do and be is what the Master of my soul directs, it is He who creates growth in others around me.

“It’s not important who does the planting, or who does the watering. What’s important is that God makes the seed grow. The one who plants and the one who waters work together with the same purpose. And both will be rewarded for their own hard work. For we are both God’s workers. And you are God’s field. You are God’s building.” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭3:7-9‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Lord may I be a spark that can set a blaze to roaring, may I be a spring time rain that allows you to create new life, may I allow your joy to overflow to draw others to you. May I be open and willing to be what you want me to be. Mold me as a potter would, forge me as a smith would, and construct me as a builder would. Blessings and honor to you oh Lord, my strength and my redeemer, amen.
