"Tell the world that Jesus lives"

"Tell the world that Jesus lives"


This song from Hillsong United called "tell the world that" has been stuck in my mind for the last few days.The Lyrics as follows:



Don’t want to stand here and shout Your praise
And walk away and forget Your Name
I’ll stand for you if it’s all I do
Cause there is none that compare to You

Cause all I want in this lifetime is You
And all i want in this whole world is you

Tell the world that Jesus lives
Tell the world that, tell the world that
Tell the world that he died for them
Tell the world that he lives again

No longer I but Christ in me
Cause it’s the truth that set me free
How could this world be a better place?
But by thy mercy and by thy grace

C’mon, c’mon we’ll tell the world about You
C’mon, c’mon we’ll tell the world about You

Tell the world that Jesus lives
Tell the world that, tell the world that
Tell the world that he died for them
Tell the world that he lives again

C’mon, c’mon we’ll tell the world about You
Tell the world that
Tell the world that
C’mon, c’mon we’ll tell the world about You
Tell the world that
Tell the world that
About You





This song is filled with the passion that we as Christians need in order to tell the world about Jesus! If when reading this we're more concerned with the "c'mon"'s and the theological structure of the song then we've missed the point entirely. We have a Savior and the world needs salvation we "Don'’t want to stand here and shout Your praise And walk away and forget Your Name ". We as a Church need to be mission focused. It is so easy to fall into the Sunday Morning trap of singing praises to God and at work on monday forget about it all. We play the silent Christians. We shout about it all and then keep silence after Church. I am much convicted as much as you are. I fall into this gross trap. People its time to step out and tell the world about Jesus! We do need to step out on the path of faith. Lord break your people especially your sleepy hollow western Church!

  • Great song, great words, great music....really hard message! It's not easy telling the world that Jesus lives. But thanks Tim for reminding us the centrality of doing just that...
