There are some songs that are more than just songs; they’re heart-prayers. Every time we sing them, we’re praying from the depths of our soul. One such song for me is “For the One” from Brian & Jenn Johnson’s latest album, “After All These Years.” I thought it appropriate to post this week as we considered love and judgment in my series on leaving religion to follow Christ. The lyrics are in the video, but here’s the chorus:
Help me to love with open arms like You do
A love that erases all the lines and sees the truth
Oh that when they look in my eyes they would see You
Even in just a smile they would feel the Father’s love
May the broken world Jesus loved to death see this in all of us. Amen.
